Arctic wolf

Arctic wolf - Boreal Region - Parc Oméga

Boreal Region

There are two varieties of wolf at Parc Oméga:: the grey wolf and the arctic wolf. This arctic wolf differentiates itself by its white coat which includes just a few grey hairs. They are robust and their muzzle, ears and legs are shorter than other wolves. They can adapt very easily to cold temperatures and their white fur is a camouflage.

The arctic wolf is a grey wolf subspecies. It lives on Canadian arctic islands and on the Greenland Northern and Eastern shores.
