The Italian Wolf, also known as the Apennine Wolf, used to live in the Apennine mountains. Recently though, they’ve made their homes in Switzerland and Southern France. The males usually weigh from 53-88 pounds, and the females weigh about 10% lighter. Their body length is usually 39-55 inches. Their fur color is usually black or brown, but some have black fur. This wolf usually eats Chamois, Roe deer, Red deer, and Wild boar, but when any of those animals aren’t available, they’ll eat small animals like rabbits. They will sometimes eat berries and herbs. Mating season is in mid-March, with 2 months for a gestation period. Usually from 2-8 pups are born.
