Subspecies of the Gray Wolf

Eurasian wolf
Generally a large subspecies measuring 105–160 cm in length and weighing 40–80 kg. The pelt is usually a mix of rusty ocherous and light grey.

Tundra wolf
A large subspecies, with adults measuring 112–137 cm, and weighing 36.6–52 kg. The fur is very long, dense, fluffy and soft and is usually very light and grey in colour. The lower fur is lead-grey and the upper fur is reddish-grey.

Arabian wolf
A small, "desert adapted" wolf that is around 66 cm tall and weighs, on average, about 18 kg. Its fur coat varies from short in the summer and long in the winter, possibly because of solar radiation.

Arctic wolf
A medium sized wolf that is between 64 and 79 cm tall and 89 to 189 cm long, weighing between 35 and 45 kg on average, though there have been specimens found weighing up to 68 kg.

Manitoba Wolf
The Manitoba wolf, also known as the grey-white wolf, is a subspecies of the gray wolf, Canis lupus, that used to roam in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. They are believed by many to simply be Hudson Bay wolf.

Mexican Wolf
A small subspecies which weighs 25–45 kg and measures 140–170 cm in total length (nose to tip of tail), and 72–80 cm in shoulder height. The pelt contains a mix of grey, black, brown, and rust colors in a characteristic pattern, with white underparts.

Tibetan wolf
A small subspecies rarely exceeding 45 kg in weight. It is of a light, whitish-grey colour, with an admixture of brownish tones on the upper part of the body.

Vancouver Island Wolf
A medium sized subspecies, it is generally greyish-white or white in fur color. It is a very social subspecies and can usually be found roaming in packs of five to thirty-five individuals.

Northern Rocky Mountains wolf
This subspecies generally weighs 70–135 pounds (32–61 kg), making it one of the largest subspecies of the gray wolf in existence. It is a lighter colored animal than its southern brethren, the Southern Rocky Mountains Wolf, with a coat that includes far more white and less black. In general, the subspecies favors lighter colors, with black mixing in among them.

Labrador Wolf
The species generally weighs around 30 kg (66 lb), approximate to the average weight of most wolf species. Its coat is described as a pale light gray, tending toward white, though it can also be a "dark grizzly grey".

Eastern Wolf
The eastern wolf is smaller than the gray wolf. It has a pale grayish-brown pelt. The back and the sides are covered with long, black hairs. Behind the ears, there is a slight reddish color. These differences in attributes are thought to be a result of their red wolf ancestry. The eastern wolf is also skinnier than the gray wolf and has a more coyote-like appearance.

Baffin Island Wolf
The Baffin Island wolf is described as being light colored, sometimes white, and unusually small, as compared to other wolf subspecies. It is proposed to be the smallest of all Arctic wolf types.

Great Plains Wolf
A typical Great Plains wolf is between 4½ and 6½ feet long, from snout to tail, weighs from 60 to 110 pounds, and may have a coat of gray, black or buff with red-ish coloring.

Mackenzie Valley Wolf
The Mackenzie Valley wolf's thick, long limbs are proportionally built for traversing through rough terrain such as deep snow or the cliffy edges of the Rocky Mountains. Its deep chest hosts large lungs, letting the wolf breathe more efficiently at higher altitudes, and allowing it to exert huge amounts of stamina traveling up to 115 km (~70 miles) in one day.

Greenland Wolf
The subspecies is described as being small to medium in stature, but extremely light in weight.

Indian Wolf
A small wolf with pelage shorter than that of northern wolves, and with little to no underfur. Fur colour ranges from greyish red to reddish white with black tips. The dark V shaped stripe over the shoulders is much more pronounced than in northern wolves. The underparts and legs are more or less white.

Yukon Wolf
The subspecies has been found to weigh from 150 to 170 pounds (68 to 77 kg) at full maturity, and is considered to be the largest subspecies of Canis lupus in the world and stand between 36-42 inches at the shoulder. This wolf has also been noted as long bodied, varying in length from 5 feet to 7 feet(1.50 to 2.00 meters).The Yukon wolf typically has black fur with gray and brown markings he can also have gray or white fur.

Red Wolf
Has a brownish or cinnamon pelt, with grey and black shading on the back and tail. Generally intermediate in size between other American wolf subspecies and coyotes. Like other wolves, it has almond-shaped eyes, a broad muzzle and a wide nosepad, though like the coyote, its ears are proportionately larger. It has a deeper profile, a longer and broader head than the coyote, and has a less prominent ruff than wolves.

Alaskan Tundra Wolf
The Alaskan tundra wolf's fur is generally completely white, ranging from white to cream-white with darker fur along the spine and tail.
