Habitat: Plains and forests.

Habits: Gray Wolves form packs of six to ten individuals composed of one or more family groups. They are highly social and have a highly organized dominance hierarchy. They eat large and small game like bison, pronghorn, and deer, but will also eat fruits and berries. Gray Wolves mate for life, have litters of five to seven pups, and both parents help raise the young. This species now is extinct in Oklahoma.
