Alpha Tundra Wolf over the Den

Copyright notice

This beautiful photo of a female tundra wolf standing over her den was taken in early July 2015 by trip leader Michael Needleman during our 'Search
for the Legendary Tundra Wolves'
expedition in Nunavik, Canada. The deep light green grass is an anomaly on the tundra - and is an indicator of
a densite: the thick grass is result of rich nutrients entering the soil from scattered animal bones. This particular den had multiple holes of varying
ages - wolves never use the same hole twice. Many holes close together indicates a traditional densite - one that has been used for several
years, sometimes even decades. When this photo was taken, the pups had yet to emerge from the den. The film footage in the link below
was shot at the same time.
