Wolf & Fox (Family Canidae)

 

Canidae is the biological family of carnivorous and omnivorous mammals
that includes the wolves, foxes, jackals, coyotes, and the domestic dog;
a member of this family is called a canid. The Canidae Family is divided
into the "wolf-like" and "dog-like" animals of Tribe Canini and the
"foxes" of Tribe Vulpini.

 

Wild canids are found on every continent except Antarctica, and inhabit
a wide range of different habitats, including deserts, mountains, forests,
and grassland. They vary in size from the fennec fox at 24 cm long, to
the gray wolf, which may be up to 2 m long, and can weigh up to 80 kg.
