The Yukon Wolf is a subspecies of the Gray Wolf. The Yukon Wolf weighs between 80 and 120 pounds. Its coloration ranges from tawny grey and tan to black and pure white. The average age length is 4-12 years with pack size ranging from 7 to 9 individuals. It is distributed across the Alaska Interior and Yukon with the exception of the tundra regions.
