Nordic wolves generally weigh 35 to 55kgs. Generally wolves have a grey or grey-yellow fur, while in summer it tends to alter slightly to be red-brown. The under chin tends to usually be white. Wolves have big heads and paws. The wolf is related to the dog, as all dogs originate from wolves. Some dogs are more closely related to wolves and may even be more wolf-like. Wolves are bigger than foxes.
The gray wolves of Sweden are usually found in the forests of central or mid Sweden.
The gray wolf is the largest type in the wolf family. A male may weigh about 50kgs and a female may weigh about 40kgs.
Wolves are considered to be social animals and the children of a pair of wolves, may be part of the family even after it has reached sexual maturity (at the age of two years). Such a family of wolves would be called a pack. The wolves, despite being social, are known to fight each other. A fight between wolves may involve family members or wolves of different packs. Fights can be so aggressive that a wolf may die during such a fight.
