When It Comes to Wolves, It’s Feast or Famine
November 25, 2015 | Uncategorized
The term “feast or famine” refers to the diet of wolves and many other large predators. Prey isn’t always abundant, so wolves have a metabolism that helps them store fat and energy for long periods while prey is scarce. The most a large gray wolf can eat at one time is about 22 pounds. That would be a great feast, but an adult can go almost two weeks without food, making up the “famine” part of their diet.
