The white wolf has captured the imagination of people for years. To many, it is considered a magical and mythical animal. To a scientist it is called the arctic wolf and is of great interest.
Very few people have ever seen an arctic wolf. This is because the arctic wolf lives in the coldest place on earth. Because of this, the arctic wolf has not been disturbed by humans the same way that other wolves have been.
So relax and enjoy your tour of the arctic wolf.

I wear a coat. As a matter of fact, I wear two coats. Under the coat that you see, I have a very very thick coat of soft fur. This is called an UNDERCOAT. It keeps water from getting close to my skin and keeps me warm.
On top of this coat, is fur made up of guard hairs. The water just beads up and slides right off of these hairs. I can jump into a muddy pond and come out looking like, well like, YECH! But, just wait a few minutes and the mud falls off and I look white again.
The bad thing about water and mud coming off so easily is that I do not get that nice sewer smell we wolves love to have.
