Canis lupus, the Spanish wolf is a gray wolf, the largest wild member of the dog family and is the ancestor of the domestic dog. The skull is especially large, with powerful jaws and large, well-developed, meat-eating teeth. Like most canids, it has 42 teeth. The fur is moderately long and thick. The overall color varies from grayish-brown to yellowish-brown, and there may be a reddish tinge on the head, ears, shoulders and legs.
Hunting the intelligent, wary wolf is difficult, and most are taken by chance encounter. European wolves have a reputation for being more aggressive toward humans than North American wolves.
