Wolf (animal), carnivore related to the jackal and domestic dog. All Wolves are characterized by powerful teeth, bushy tails, and round pupils. Certain characteristics of the skull distinguish them from domestic dogs, some breeds of which they otherwise resemble. An adult gray Wolf measures up to 2 m (6.5 ft) in length, including the tail (less than half the body length), and weighs up to 80 kg (175 lb). The fur of the gray Wolf is red-yellow or yellow-gray with black patches on its back and sides, and white on its chest and abdomen. There are also black or brown gray Wolves, and those in the far north may be pure white. The red Wolf is smaller in size and usually darker in color.
The Wolf is the most powerful canine, with a very powerful bite despite its size. Its one of the best low-level close combat creatures, and an excellent counter to stealthy creatures with the camouflage or digging abilities.
