At this point, you've probably seen at least one dog in real life.
But chances are that you've never actually seen a wolf.
And, as you may know, dogs are the evolutionary descendants of wolves.
So, you might have been led to believe that a wolf is basically a big dog. That's what I thought, too...until I saw this video:
TL;DR: This is an **actual** **real life** wolf next to a human for scale:
APPARENTLY, this is just how wolves are. According the WWF, an arctic wolf can reach up to 5 feet 11 inches long, which is 1000% news to me.
Also, one wolf weighs about 175 pounds, which is probably equal to one Jared Leto with a large beard.
But THERE'S MORE: A gray wolf can reach up to 6 feet 6 inches long.
And if you've been watching Game of Thrones, those direwolves are actual wolves.
So, to recap: WOLVES ARE GODDAMN HUGE.
THEY ARE NOT JUST BIG PUPPERS.
Sometimes they kind of are?
