Arctic Wolf PNG Images - The Arctic wolf also known as the Melville Island wolf is a possible subspecies of the gray wolf native to the Canadian Arctic Islands, from Melville Island to Ellesmere Island. It is a medium-sized subspecies, distinguished from northwestern wolves by its small size, whiter color, less wide brain shell. and larger carnival. Since 1930, there has been a progressive decline in size in Arctic wolf skulls, most notably due to wolf-dog crossbreeding.

Contrary to its mainland counterpart, Arctic wolves have never been hunted badly, as the high Arctic does not have many human settlements. Therefore, Arctic wolves are relatively unafraid of humans, and can be persuaded to approach people in some areas. It has sometimes acted directly against humans. Otto Sverdrup writes that during Fram’s expedition, a pair of wolves attacked one of his teammates, who was defending himself with a ski stick.

In 1977, a pair of scientists were approached by six wolves on Ellesmere Island, with an animal jumping towards one of the scientists and rubbing his cheek. A number of incidents involving live wolves have occurred in Alert, Nunavut, where these wolves have lived close to local weather stations for decades and become accustomed to humans.

The Arctic wolf was first described as a distinctive subspecies by British zoologist Reginald Pocock in 1935, after examining a single skull from Melville Island. As of 2005. the Arctic wolf is still recognized as a distinct subspecies by MSW3. However, studies performed on Arctic wolf autosomal DNA and mtDNA data showed that there were no unique haplotypes, thus suggesting that its colonization in the Arctic Islands of the North American mainland was relatively new, and thus not sufficient to justify subspecies status.
