Canis lupus lupus
Also, photos 1&2 are of Grissom, the omega male, and photo 3 is Granite, alpha female.
Sorry, I meant wolf centre not elf centre hahaha
These wolves are from the haliburton forest elf centre. The wolves can't see visitors of the centre because the windows are one way, and I was lucky enough to visit the facility at a time when they were hanging around the windows. Usually they're somewhere in the forest. The black wolf is Haida, the alpha male, and he's showing his dominance in that picture by resting his head on Cedar, the beta male. If I'm not mistaken, they were finally successful last year at having pups (previous pups from different alphas didn't survive).
Love the fourth shot! Can you tell us something about how you came to see them?
Yes, it's definitely a phenotypic variation
I just saw some black coyotes in Florida...didn't know that occurred...so you assume they are just different color forms?
I don't think the "Gray" really refers to the color but rather the common name of the species...I could be wrong though.
Is the black one also a gray wolf?
