More Information

Canis lupus, the Pleistocene Grey Wolf, was the Ice Age species that first gave rise to a domestic population. They survived long after many other large mammals in that time period by changing their diet. Research shows that they adapted their diet over thousands of years, shifting from hunting horses primarily in the Ice Age to Caribou and Moose in more modern times.
