About Gray Wolves

The gray wolf (canis lupus) is a top predator and one of three canids found in Yellowstone National Park. About 100 wolves roam the Lamar Valley, dining on elk, bison, moose, deer, and other prey. Wolves have keen senses of sight, hearing, and smell. The life of a wolf is dangerous and wild wolves usually don't live more than 4-5 years.
