how would you describe a wolf?
Here we go:
Wolves are the largest members of the canine family. They are carnivores who mainly pray on large ungulates such as caribou and deer, but also feed on smaller mammals like rabbits and mice. They are highly social animals that live in social units called packs, which usually consist of a breeding pair and their offspring, sometimes mixed with other relatives. The pack have a very complex social structure, and communicate through a variety of means including howling and body language. Wolves are built for endurance, and will often track their prey for vast distances. Only by working together can they bring down their preferred prey of large ungulates. Wolves are apex predators, an important link in healthy ecosystems, thinning out old and sick members of their prey. Very adaptable animals, wolves once lived in most regions of the Earth, but centuries of interference from man have led to them only occupying a small portion of their historic range.
