Something seems to have set this Timber Wolf into a bit of a state as he bares his teeth for us at Omega Park in Montebello, Quebec. This animal is a beautiful creature and being able to snap a picture of a Timber Wolf at this close range with a unhappy look on his face is something you may never capture in the wild.
The coloring of the fur of the Timber Wolf changes with seasons as it provides excellent camouflage for the wolf in the winter months. His sharp teeth are what makes this animal a force to be reckoned with and you can see why other animal species fear the Timber Wolf.
The long canine teeth are specifically designed so that the Timber Wolf can hold on and overcome its prey and the smaller teeth are used for shearing flesh. Teeth are a wolf's main weapons and without its sharp fangs and mouthful of teeth, the Timber Wolf would probably never survive as it would starve itself to death.
Most people that come to Omega Park in Montebello, Quebec spend a fair amount of time watching the Timber Wolves and their unique way that they sleek around their habitat. They have become one of the most favorite types of animal to watch while at Omega Park with their beautiful fur encompassing their face. The size of them is astounding as they can grow to be about five feet in length and two and a half feet tall as they are the largest species of canines in the world.
