Like humans, no two wolves look exactly alike. But most North American grey wolves have some common traits that can help
us identify them.
Unlike dog ears, which are often large and floppy (as with beagles and retrivers) wolf ears are rounded,
stand straight up, and are filled with fur.
Wolf Eye Color:
When wolf pups are about ten days of age, their eyes first open. Their eyes are a deep murky blue,
but by about three weeks of age the pups eyes have turned a bright blue. Around six to eight weeks of age the pups
eyes will turn green and finally will reach their adult color which can be anything from pale yellow, to amber or
even orange or brown. The orange of this wolve's eyes is common.
One trait that is common among all adult grey wolves is their broad face, given them by the thick ruff of fur
on the sides of their heads. Their eyes are narrow set, and their noses are long.
