[font=Arial Black]Current research suggests that a number of wolf like carnivores diverged from a common ancestor about two to three million years ago. The first grey wolf probably appeared in Europe about a million years ago. Around 750,000 years ago, it is thought to have migrated to North America. Wolves are the largest members of the dog family.[/font]
[font=Arial Black]In Irish mythology Airitech was a mysterious creature whose three daughters were werewolf like creatures, eventually killed by CAS Corach. The Irish word for wolf is Mac Tire meaning literally the Son of the Country side. In Greek mythology, a wolf was responsible for the childhood survival of the future founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. The twin babies were ordered to be killed by their great uncle Amulius. The servant ordered to kill them, however, relented and placed the two babies on the banks of the Tiber River. The river, which was in flood, rose and gently carried the cradle and the twins downstream, where under the protection of the river deity Tiberinus, they would be adopted by a she-wolf known as Lupa.[/font]
[font=Arial Black]A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope wolf and man, is a mythological human with the ability to shape shift into a wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction a bite or scratch from another werewolf.

[font=Arial Black]Wolves live and hunt in packs of around six to ten animals. They are known to roam large distances, perhaps ten miles in a single day. They eat large animals such as deer, elk, and moose. Wolves also eat smaller mammals, birds, fish, snakes, and fruit. Wolf packs are established according to a strict hierarchy, with a dominant male at the top and his mate not far behind. These are known as the alpha male and the alpha female. Usually this male and female are the only animals of the pack to breed. All the pack's adults help to care for young pups by bringing them food and watching them while others hunt.
[font=Arial Black]Wolves communicate by growling, whimpering and howling. The wolf's legs are slightly longer than those of other carnivores. This enables the animal to move swiftly, and allows it to move through deep snow. Wolf[/font][font=Arial Black]’[/font][font=Arial Black]s night vision is better than any other carnivore although its sense of smell is weaker than that of most hunting dogs. Wolves are highly territorial and usually establish territories that are far larger than they require, assuring a steady supply of prey. Wolves defend their territories from other packs through a combination of scent marking, direct attacks and howling.[/font]
