Mexican Grey Wolf

Mexican Grey Wolves behave and eat mostly the same things as their Northern counterparts.  They live in packs, hunt together, like winter, and give birth to young in dens that the alpha female digs out.

Mexican wolves are a endangered animal that could disappear over the next decade.  There are only 150 left in the wild.  The last few wild ones live in the mountains of northern Mexico, Arizona, and New Mexico.  They are lighter colored.

Mexican wolves are smaller and skinnier than regular grays.  They don’t hunt large and hostile prey such as bison, elk, or moose; but still rely on their highly social packs to bring down deer, rodents, rabbits, and javalinas.
