Welcome to Wolves of North America. Here you will find information on wolves, a gallery, and information on the International Wolf Center. Also, I would love it if you would stop by my guestbook!
I highly recommend that if you are new to the wolf species, you check out the "Wolf Terms" page. You can use this to refer to terms that you don't understand while reading through my website.
Wolves are beautiful, majestic animals, and I hope they are on the planet for many years to come. If you need to take any information, pictures, or music from this website, I ask that you please include where they came from, which is indicated on the credits page, and throughout the website. Rules and terms for picture usage from www.wolf.org can be found here.
Thank you for taking time to learn about what I think is the worlds most fantastic animal.
