Product Description

History

Wolves, and in specific cases black wolves, are a common symbol and icon in many different cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Because of their jet black coat, a color commonly associated with evil, black wolves are traditionally regarded as vicious, malevolent, and powerful. On the contrary, these wolves are quite timid when it comes to interactions with humans and they often choose to avoid confrontation if possible.

Found in Europe, Alaska, Canada and Asia, wolves live and hunt in packs of six to ten wolves led by a dominant male and female. Wolves howl to communicate, attracting the attention of their pack or sending territorial or confrontational messages to wolves outside their pack.
