MY, WHAT BIG TEETH YOU HAVE!

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Wolves have in­cred­i­bly pow­er­ful chom­pers. They can bite through bone in just eight bites. That’s right. Eight! They need all that strength so they can take down their favourite prey. You see, most wolves don’t bother too much with smaller mam­mals like rab­bits or ground­hogs. They’re more of a “go big or go home” sort, choos­ing to take down larger mam­mals like Moose, Bi­son, cari­bou, deer and even Muskox. But it’s not easy. Only one in 10 an­i­mals they chase is ac­tu­ally killed. When they fi­nally get the chance to chow down, they re­ally do — adults can wolf down nine kilo­grams of meat in a sin­gle sit­ting.
