Tundra wolf

The tundra wolf (Canis Lupus Albus), also known as the Eurasian tundra wolf, Siberian tundra wolf, Turukhan tundra wolf, Eurasian arctic wolf, or Turukhan wolf, is a subspecies of gray wolf ranging from Finland to Kamchatka. It was 1st described in 1792 by Robert Kerr. It lives in the Northernmost areas in Eurasia. 500 wolves were caught in the Taymyr peninsula and Kanin peninsula. They used to fight with the Hokkaido wolves there in the Kamchatka peninsula and the Hokkaido wolf ranged from the Japanese island of Hokkaido up to Russia's island of Sakhalin and Kamchatka peninsula, and the Kuril islands. The tundra wolf is a Eurasian ancestor of the arctic wolf. This is a picture of a taxidermied specimen at the museum of zoology. They also live in the Chukota peninsula in the Easternmost of Russia, even farther east than the Kamchatka peninsula. Kamchatka is in the Southern part of Northeastern Russia. There is more than one tundra wolf like the Alaskan tundra wolf, Baffin island wolf, and the recently extinct Bernard's wolf.
