Howling plays a major role in the social interaction within the wolf pack, as well as in communicating with other packs.

The wolf is highly adaptable and can live in very different environments, as long as enough prey is available. Its diet comprises elk, reindeer and deer as well as hares, beavers and badgers. Wolves are pure carnivores and an adult will consume on average 2 kg of meat a day. To help with their digestion, they sometimes eat grass and berries.
