caribou, elk, bison, and mountain goats. Wolves also sometimes eat hares, beavers, and
birds. A wolf often eats about 9 kilograms of food at one meal. (That's about 80
A gray wolf usually lives for six to eight years.
The wolves' communication skills are very important to the pack's survival. Wolves work
together to hunt, raise their young and protect their territory.
Wolves have an excellent sense of smell.
They use their urine to mark territory so strange wolves know they're intruding, and to tell
other wolves in their own pack where they are.
A wolf pack is generally made up of an adult male and female pair (a mother and a father) and
their young. Young wolves stay in their parents' pack for at least two or three years before
some of them take off to join other packs or to start their own.
Wolf pups play a lot as they're growing. They leap and pounce, chase and wrestle, play hideand-seek and tag—a lot .While they're having fun, they're also practicing skills they'll need
when they're adults. By playing, they learn how to communicate and get along with each
other. Their games provide practice for hunting techniques.

• Bears are large, strong omnivores. Omnivore is a word for animals that eat
both meat and plants. They belong to the mammal class, because they
are covered in hair, they have a spine, they’re warm-blooded and they
feed milk to their babies once they are born. Bears come in many different
colors, shape, and sizes and they live all over the world, except Antarctica
and Australia. Most species of bears live to around 25 years of age. There
are different species of bears: they are Asiatic, Black, Brown, Polar, Panda,
Sloth. Some of these species has a few sub-species. For example, the subspecies of the brown bear include the Grizzly bear and the Kodiak bear.
• Bear hibernation is differents; true hibernation involves a drastic drop in
body temperature but the hibernating animal will awaken occasionally .
• When a bear 'hibernates' it is really in a deep sleep. It's body temperature
drops but not drastically and it does not wake up...not even to get some
food. The one exception is that a mother bear will wake up to give birth to
her cubs in January or February.
