The brown wolf has a long face with two ears, and a long muzzle full of sharp teeth for tearing at their prey and a rough tongue for scraping meat off bone. They have four muscular legs well suited for endurance running and a fluffy tail which is used to communicate nonverbally to their pack.
Ecology and Habitats
The brown wolf primarily preys upon weak, sick, and elderly wildlife within its hunting range, which allows healthier wildlife to thrive. This makes them integral to the health of the foodchain across their territorial range of Nomura and Khalembra.
Dietary Needs and Habits
Brown wolves are opportunistic carnivores, hunting and scavenging animals of all sizes throughout their range. Favorite prey includes all manner and size of mammal although they have also been known to hunt lizards and fish should the opportunity arise.
Brown wolves are extremely social animals, hunting in packs of at least three up to twenty dependent upon the availability and size of prey within the area. They typically mate for life with both parents assisting in raising the young, who are born in litters containing one to five cubs. Each pack is led by an alpha male and alpha female mated pair.
