A LITTLE ABOUT THE ARCTIC WOLF
The fur on the Arctic wolf is as thick and white as it is to help them survive. The extreme cold they live in had them evolve to have two thick layers of fur. The outer layer helps them stay waterproof and trap heat close to the body. This layer also grows thicker in the colder winter months to prepare the arctic wolves for the bitter winds. This enables these animals to stay warm even in the extreme cold and carry on their lives. In addition to their fur, they also have smaller ears than their cousins. This reduces the surface area that heat could possibly escape from, keeping their body temperature warmer.
Additionally, due to the permanently frozen ground, their paws also have to be adapted to give them the best chance at survival. To better grip the earth and also distribute their weight evenly, they have wide paws. Their paws also have padding that gives them a good grip when they walk and insulate their feet.

Ejaz Khan’s most recent expedition has brought him to the Arctic. With temperatures going down to -56 degrees and winds blowing up to 60 miles per hour, his tent was the only shelter he had. No one was around, just him and his guide. He says it was one of the most challenging expeditions he has ever had, after this trip, he says Norway was a piece of cake. In the Arctic, days after not being able to find the Arctic Wolf, he decided to pack it in and leave for the 7 to 8 hour trip on the snowmobile back to town. 30 minutes into the trip is when the wolves were walking towards him, that’s when the magic happened and he achieved great images of the Arctic Wolves.
