Vancouver Island Sea Wolves

Genetically distinct from the usually land-based wolves, these wolves swim from island to island and hunt sea animals for around 90% of their diet.

They’re big on sushi, with salmon making up a big percentage of their meals. They will also forage for clams, barnacles, eggs and sea mammal carcases.

They are also smaller than and have a bit of a different look than regular wolves with sometimes a more reddish brown coat. They have also been estimated to swim over 7.5 miles straight.
