Keeps a watchful eye on its territory, which it routinely patrols by padding swiftly and silently across varied terrain. Oftentimes, tracks left in the snow or mud are the only proof of this wild canine’s passage; its single-track impressions are indicative of an efficient (if elusive) hunter who is built for long journeys and always moves with purpose. Like man’s best friend, the wolf is a nimble digitigradeit moves or stands on its toes rather than its entire foot. Large paws allow for an even distribution of weight with every step, while slightly webbed toes allow for easier movement over deep snow and in water. Its non-retractable claws provide grip to ensure its agility, even as it pursues prey with other pack members, who conserve their own energy in the snow by stepping into impressions made by the wolf in front of them.
