A population of unusual wolves lives along the Pacific coast of British Columbia, Canada.
“We know from exhaustive DNA studies that these wolves are genetically different from their continental relatives,” says Ian McAllister, an award—winning photographer who has been studying these animals for almost two decades.
“They behave differently, swimming from island to island and hunting marine animals. They are also morphologically different – smaller in size and physically different from their mainland relatives,” says McAllister.
McAllister conveyed the magic of these wolves with his breathtaking photographs.
These wolves do not hunt deer, in fact, many can live their whole lives without even seeing deer. Instead, they rely on what the tide brings. Fish roe, crustaceans, seals and washed whales are common food for these wolves.
In addition, they are also excellent swimmers. Moreover, the record for the range is their swim to the archipelago, located 12 kilometers from the nearest land.
