I cannot wait to show my UK-based students some of my recent wildlife encounters, which have included wild wolves, elk and an extremely friendly grey jay.
Wild wolves (whose biological name is the 'grey wolf') are social animals, meaning they live with their family members in their 'pack'. The average pack comprises a family of between five and eleven animals. Sometimes, two or three families can live together, which can create a pack of up to 40 wolves.
Coat colours range from being near completely white, through to various shades of blonde, cream and sandy colours. In addition, there are grey, brown and black colours. Interestingly, more variation in fur colours tend to occur up in the mountains.
