In the wild Pacific coast of British Columbia, there lives an influx of sea wolves. “We have discovered through extensive studies of DNA that the wolves in this area are genetically distinct from their continental cousins,” says McAllister. “They have distinct behavior and can be seen swimming from island to island and preying on sea creatures. They also differ in morphological terms and are smaller in size and physically distinct from the mainland counterparts,” states Ian McAllister, an award-winning photographer studying the animals for nearly two decades.
McAllister captured the enchanting magnificent wolves with breathtaking photos. When he was swimming towards their paws, “the curious canines approached him with such a closeness that they could be heard grunting into the snorkel. He took several photos and then plunged back to deeper water, not even attempting to look up.” The biographic says.
You could even consider them pescatarians, as 90% of their diet comes directly from the sea, and the remaining 4% comes from eating fish. Apart from having special diets, sea wolves also are adept swimmers, with their longest record of swimming to one archipelago 7.5 miles from the closest landmass.
