8 Incredible Pictures Of Rare Sea Wolves Who Live Off The Ocean


Along the wild Pacific coast of British Columbia exists a population of sea wolves.

According to McAllister, award-winning photographer who has been studying these rare animals for almost twenty years, these wolves are “genetically distinct from their continental kin”. They are both behaviourally and morphologically distinct. They swim from island to island and prey on sea animals. They are also smaller in size and differ from their mainland counterparts.

McAllister took magical pictures of these wolves as you will see below. While he swam towards them, they approached him so closely that he was able to hear them grunting into his snorkel. He managed to take several pictures, then pushed back without daring to look up.

Someone could almost call these wolves pescatarians – 90% of their food comes directly from the sea, with 1/4 of it coming from eating salmon. Apart from their distinctive food patterns, sea wolves are excellent swimmers too; their farthest record is swimming to an archipelago 7.5 miles from the closest landmass.
