Schleich Arctic Wolf Cub 14804

Arctic wolf babies are born between May and June. After all, that is the warmest time of the year in their habitat, the polar region. Since the soil remains frozen all year round, though, the mother is unable to dig a den for them. She keeps her offspring behind rocks providing shelter from the wind until they are big enough to explore their environment.

This Arctic wolf has long, dense guard hairs and a thick, warming undercoat to protect it from the icy cold.
The Arctic wolf lives in the Canadian Arctic islands and northern Greenland. It is so cold there that the soil does not thaw, even in "summer". But not only the temperatures are a challenge for the wolf. In search of prey, it has to travel up to 30 km per day. Sometimes it goes for weeks without food, especially during the winter, when it is pitch dark for 4-5 months. But the habitat also provides an advantage: This far north, humans can hardly prey on it.
The Schleich figures are modelled with attention to detail, hand-painted with care, and provide educationally valuable playtime.

FUN FACT

The Arctic wolf lives in regions where the temperature rarely rises above –22 degrees.

Arctic wolf babies have grey fur at birth. It later turns white.
