A brief annotation
The polar wolf (in Latin ‘Canis lupus tundrarum’) is one of the largest subspecies of the wolf. It lives in the Arctic and tundra. The polar wolf is well adapted to life in conditions of low temperatures, strong winds, permafrost and long periods without sunlight. Since these territories are unsuitable for human life, it is not threatened with extermination.
