forests, and many other areas.

Wolves will only survive in an environment that can provided sources of water and other mammals that also live in the area that can be a source of food. However, if there are no other mammals in the area then the wolves can eat different types of plants or bugs that can provide water and food like materials that can sustain a wolf.

The Evolution Of a Wolf
A Hesperocyoninae looks like a cross between a weasel and a fox. This animal is part of the three sub-families of the canid faimly, Which was the first group evolved in North America about 40 million years ago.
A Borophaginae evolved from the Hesperocyinae about 34 million years ago. This animal looks like a large hyena-like animal with huge jaw muscles and study teeth.
Now the Caninae sub-family is still in existence. The Hesperocyons and Borophgines, who were restricted to North America, migrated in the last 5 million years resulted in the creation of the Caninae sub-family.
Ditigrade gives the abiltiy to walk on one's toes. This advanced ability causes wolves to walk and run faster making it easier to out run a predator or catch its' prey.
Wolves started becoming a hypocarnivore,over millions of years ago. This means the wolf at one point did not eat all meat. This characteristic is the reason for the development of the wolf's diet. However, now they are carnivores.
This ability makes it possible for wolves to hunt and most importantly to consume its prey.
