Arctic wolf babies are born between May and June.
Arctic wolf babies are born between May and June. After all, that is the warmest time of the year in their habitat, the polar region. Since the soil remains frozen all year round, though, the mother is unable to dig a den for them. She keeps her offspring behind rocks providing shelter from the wind until they are big enough to explore their environment.
Arctic wolf babies have grey fur at birth. It later turns white.
