Anonymous asked: Out of interest, what are the colour variations of canis lupus and other wolf subspecies? Thank you for your time :)
Colour variations per wolf specie:
- Gray wolves (Canis lupus) can have coat colours or colour combination ranging from black, grey, white (though never a pure white as seen in dogs), brown, blonde, “silver”, reddish/orange. The Gray wolf has a lot of subspecies, and each subspecie has it’s own variation in colour. Some can come in all colours named above, whereas other Gray wolf subspecies for example only come in white. Some colour possibilities in Gray wolves:
Entirely black [X]
Black and grey [X]
Different shades of grey [X]
Very light grey [X]
Big contrast [X]
Little contrast [X]
Grey white black brown [X]
Brown/reddish with whites and blacks [X]
Brown and black with some greys [X]
Brown and black [X]
Light brownish/sandish [X]
White with some grey and/or black variations [X]
All of the pictured above of course can have lots of variations - especially the darkness/brightness and contrast. No wolf looks the same.
If you want to know the colour possibilities of a certain Gray wolf subspecie, you can easily find that online.
- Red wolves (Canis rufus) always have a combination of the colours orange/reddish, brown and grey, with black markings and along with some white parts and some black parts like the tip of their tail:[X]
- Ethiopian wolves (Canis simensis) are orange with white, with some grey and black markings:[X]
Also, here's a nice chart with pictures of some wolf subspecies that shows the typical coat colour for each subspecies.
