by Safari Ltd

Also known as the Arctic wolf, the white wolf is a subspecies of gray wolf native to Canada and Greenland. Relatively small compared to other wolf species, the white wolf’s size doesn’t match its outgoing nature, as they are known for approaching humans without hesitation.

  • Scientific Name: Canis lupus arctos
  • Characteristics: This wolf has caught sight of you, and has raised its head in an inquisitive gaze. Like all Safari wildlife figurines, our white wolf figurine has been painted and sculpted by professional artists to ensure life-like realism and accurate scientific detail.
  • Size and Color: 3.6 inches long and 2.2 inches tall, this figurine is about the size of a deck of cards stood on its side. As its name implies, the white wolf’s coat is almost entirely pearlescent white, allowing it to blend into its surroundings when it’s on the prowl for prey.

  • History:

    Given the importance of buffalos in Native American culture, it’s no surprise that the white buffalo was considered a spiritually significant and important animal. If a white buffalo was spotted or found, Native American abstained from killing it and instead visited it for prayer as well as other religious rituals. When you hold this beautiful animal in the palm of your hand, you just might understand why some cultures held it in such high regard!

    A White Buffalo is an American Bison with white fur, in contrast to the usual brown color of a Bison. White Buffalos are born white for any of four reasons. Some are albino, others are leucistic, a few have a rare genetic trait that allows their fur to stay white a few years after birth, and some have the white Charolais Cattle in their ancestry. The combination of their large size and rare occurrence made White Buffalo sacred in some Native American spiritualities. The most famous White Buffalo is Miracle Moon, a 100% pure Bison who has birthed multiple White Buffalo calves.
