Gray wolves are carnivores. They hunt prey on their own, steal the prey of other predators, or scavenge carrion. Prey is located by chance or scent. Animals included in the diet of gray wolves vary geographically and depend on prey availability. Gray wolves are highly social, pack-living animals. Each pack is comprised of two to thirty-six individuals, depending upon habitat and abundance of prey. Most packs are made up of 5 to 9 individuals. They may live up to thirteen years in the wild, though average lifespan is 5 to 6 years. In captivity, they can live to be fifteen years of age.
