The Eastern Timber Wolf comes in a variety of colors from white to grey and brown to black. They often have reddish muzzles and its lower legs are typically white. They measure from 5 to 5 1/2 inches in length and 25 to 36 inches in length, they weight anywhere from 50 to 100 lbs.
The eastern timber wolf was at some time found as far as Minnesota. It still lives in over 40 % of its original range in Canada. It is found mainly around the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence regions of Southeast Ontario and Southwest Quebec. They are mostly located in Algonquin Park Ontario. The Eastern Timber Wolf doesn't always make use of shelter unless rearing an offspring. There shelter will always be by a water source, their territory will usually cover 20 to 120 miles.

Dog and wolf DNA are very similar with a 0.2% difference. They both share a common ancestor from maybe about 2 million years ago.
This Molecular evidence shows that coyote, jackals and dogs share DNA and features because they all share the pointed ears and bushy tails.
The dog and the human basically have the same skeleton setup.
The human, dog, bird, and whale all have similar bones but different sizes.
A wolfs vestigial structure is its dewclaw, its too far up on its leg to be used. The "vestigial" part of an animal is the part that is no longer needed or used. It shows us parts that its ancestors might have needed.
This is a skeleton of the dire wolf, ancestor of wolves. The dire wolfs tail was 2 ft in length while the wolf now is 1.5 ft. Weight for the dire wolf would be 110 to 175 lbs, while our typical wolves are 75 to 125 lbs. The transitional fossils shows how the animal has evolved over years.
Comparative Embryology can be used to compare an animals growth with another animal to see if they are similar. This can be used as evidence to see if they might have a common ancestor.
