My silky ivory coat keeps me warm in the artic climate, my keen senses search for prey in the Alaskan wilderness- When I encounter the mighty mount Denali, I climb it, yes, I am an Artic Wolf and am known for being carnivorous. I savor the flavor of a great muskoxen and caribou. The way the twilight sparkles upon my prey, I feel the desire for more- When darkness hovers over the land, my pack and I find that there is more prey than during the day holding such brilliant light. My teeth- Razor sharp. My eyes- Deep chameleon blue. Here I am, hunting for the fox that I always fight, we battle and struggle with each other’s strength- And as I search for artic hares in the middle of the night, my leap into catching him is nine feet long in length. As dusk arrives I anticipate the salmon- The reverie delivers the taste I can never resist. As I run through my territory of about one hundred miles I feel the fervor of the fight. My teeth- They clench. My eyes- Intense. I am ready for the temptation of killing as it arrives, and as my teeth growl I soon become prepared- My claws dug deep in the ground as I begin to thrive, for I have encountered a black mountain bear. Through the combat of the battle I have found victory. I am alone, with no other wolf in the brawl. I relish in the taste of triumph and surmount as being the greatest Artic Wolf in the Alaskan territory. My teeth- Superior. My eyes- Acute. My famished body has been marked with the game, my prey killed with one grasp from my mouth- Then I linger on to my cave, fulfilled and tame, tomorrow it will be the time to travel down south.

Wonderful write about the Arctic wolf; I have a throw on of a white wolf covering my bedroom window, sometimes the full moon will shine through it on his forehead. I've always been fascinated by the wolf, especially your wolf you've written so powerfully here!
