African gray wolf (SciiFii).png

The African gray wolf (Canis lupus africanus), also known as the serengeti wolf, the serengeti gray wolf, the subsaharan wolf, and the subsaharan gray wolf, is a subspecies of gray wolf that originally did not exist, but has since been created by SciiFii and introduced to the open woodlands, grasslands, highlands and forests of Africa to help boost biodiversity. The African gray wolves mostly inhabited the high altitudes and mountainous ranges in the Atlas Mountains and have thicker coats to endure the cold. The African gray wolves live in the grasslands, mountains, steppes and temperate forests of Africa, especially the Atlas Mountains. The African gray wolf are one of the largest subspecies of gray wolves, reaching about the same size as the other large subspecies of gray wolves: the Yukon wolf and the northwestern wolf, weighing on average 60 kilograms (132 lb) while some African gray wolves can weigh about 68 kg (150 lb). The African gray wolf is a carnivore like all other gray wolf subspecies, mainly feeding on equids, camelids, deer, antelopes, bovids, and other similarly-sized prey. However, it will also scavenge elephant, giraffe and rhinoceros carcasses and prey upon calves if they're vulnerable. The African gray wolves face competition with African wild dogs, giant jackals, giant Ethiopian wolves, spotted hyenas, and striped hyenas, which are their main rivals. The conservation status of African gray wolves is Least Concern due to successful efforts, the African gray wolf's wide range and its tolerance to many of the human activities.
