Arctic Wolf is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Arctic Wolf has long, snow-white hair that reaches all the way down to her knees with every strand of hair ending in an icy-blue color. She has two large ears, which, similar to her hair, are white with blue tips. She has amber yellow eyes, a mid-length, fluffy, white tail, and appears to be tall compared to most friends.
Arctic Wolf wears a fluffy scarf with a shade that complements a mesh of her hair shades, with her scarf being overlapped by a blue and white plaid bow-tie. She wears a white midriff beneath a faded blue, unbuttoned short coat with snow-white rolled cuffs. Her plaid bow-tie is complemented by her skirt of the same design and color. She wears white leggings, and fuzzy, white boots. Arctic Wolf holds a miniature snowman with blue eyes and a green hat.
Recently, all her blue has been replaced with whites and beiges.
In Real Life
The Arctic Wolf is a subspecies of the gray wolf native to Alaska and the islands of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. They have two thick layers of white fur, helping them to stay warm even in the cold northern winters. Compared to other wolves, they also have comparatively smaller ears which help to regulate their body temperature. They have also adapted to the frozen landscape, developing padded paws to help maintain their balance. Also adding to the adapting capabilities of the Arctic wolf is their proficiency in surviving on body fat, allowing them to go long stretches without food at a time.
Contrary to popular belief, Arctic wolves are not solitary by nature. They can form a pack of up to twenty wolves, depending on the availability of food sources, and are very territorial. Having a diet that mainly consists of caribous and muskoxen, Arctic wolves attack their prey in groups. They can eat up to 20 pounds or 9 kilograms of meat in one feeding, and one kill can offer enough food for a pack for several days.
Like most other wolf species, only the alpha male and beta female will be allowed to mate. A young wolf will usually head out of their den to mate and make their own pack of wolves. The Arctic wolf can give birth to up to twelve pups at a time. Although wolf pups are very vulnerable in the first few months of their births, the Arctic wolf does not have many predators owing to their isolated location. Incidents between packs having overlapping territories have been known to occur.
