This is a new exhibit at the Natural History Museum. The species is gray wolf, Canis lupus, but I don't know which of the four existing subspecies present in Canada it belongs to. Does anyone? Id' love to know.
The color of wolves' fur varies from white, white and tan, to reddish, gray or brown mixed with black. But does the fur's color serve a camouflage purpose? I found this interesting article on the subject and would like to share it with you: http://www.world-science.net/othernews/090206_wolf.htm
