Wolves are largest in the canine family. They are animals native to Eurasia. They are animals who love company and always travel with their mates and adult offspring.
They are dangerous predators and don’t have many enemies, other than humans. Wolves are usually killed by humans because they prey on their livestock. Wolves usually shy away from humans.
