The African Gray Wolf is Africa's only gray wolf subspecies. It is indigenous to savannahs, grasslands and Atlas Mountains of Africa, hunting deer, quaggas (reintroduced), antelopes, sick/weak buffaloes, horses, young elephants, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, red river hogs, rabbits, and other herbivores. Much like most gray wolf subpecies, they mainly communicate by howling. They face competition with African wild dogs and hyenas.
