Canis lupus nubilus

Great Plains Wolf

The Great Plains Wolf was once found throughout the United States and the southern regions of Canada. It is the most common subspecies of the gray wolf in the continental United States. The Great Plains Wolf measures between 4 to 7 feet from type of the nose to the tip of the tail and weighs between 60-110 pounds. They are grey, black or buff in coloration. Today it is found in the western Great Lakes region of the United States and Canada. Abundant when Louis and Clark traversed the Great Plains, habitat destruction due to human settlement, ranching, railroad construction, and dissemination of the bison the Great Plains Wolf became scarce in its former territories. The Great Plains Wolf was removed from the endangered species act.
