There are a combination of factors that contribute to the wolf’s success during the winter months. Perhaps the biggest reason wolves do well in the winter is because they move in packs. While this means less food for everyone, it also means there are more of them to keep each other warm. Also, other predators are hibernating or nocturnal, whereas wolves are active during the day and do not hibernate during the winter. Some wolves, like the arctic wolves, are built for frigid temperatures and limited food. In addition to the way they are built, arctic wolves will follow their main source of food: oxen and caribou. Wolves will follow herds of these animals while they migrate, and since these herds rely on grass (which is either frozen or buried under snow and ice), there are a lot more animals the wolves can hunt for food.
