An arctic wolf is acting friendly in Canada

Beautiful animals in the snow are fascinating: an arctic wolf is acting friendly in Canada. These wolves remind you of how dogs became domesticated. The friendlier wolves sure gained the attention of humans. Animals could get food from humans. Dogs were created.

The dog, Canis familiaris, is a direct descendent of the gray wolf, Canis lupus: In other words, dogs as we know them are really domesticated wolves. All modern dogs are descendants of wolves, though this domestication may have happened twice, producing groups of dogs descended from two unique common ancestors.

Dogs were most likely domesticated by accident, when wolves began trailing ancient hunter-gatherers to snack on their garbage. Docile wolves may have been slipped extra food scraps, the certain theory goes, so they survived better, and passed on their genes. Eventually, these friendly wolves evolved into today's dogs.

The wolf (Canis lupus[a]), also known as the gray wolf or grey wolf, is a large canine native to Eurasia and North America. More than thirty subspecies of Canis lupus have been recognized, and gray wolves, as colloquially understood, comprise non-domestic/feral subspecies.

The wolf is certainly most specialized for cooperative game hunting as demonstrated by its physical adaptations to tackling large prey, its more social nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior. It travels in nuclear families consisting of a certain mated pair accompanied by their offspring. Offspring may leave to form their own packs in their adulthood.
