Wolves vary greatly in size depending on where they live. The smallest wolves live in the southern parts of the Middle East where the Arabian wolf may weigh no more than 30 pounds. Adult female gray wolves in northern Minnesota weigh between 50 and 85 pounds, and adult males between 70 and 110 pounds. Gray wolves are larger in the northwestern United States, Canada, and Alaska and in Russia where adult males weigh 85 to 115 pounds and occasionally reach 130 pounds. Males generally weigh about 20 percent more than females. Wolves attain their adult height, length and weight in the first one to two years. Most look like adults by late autumn of their first year.

Red wolves are intermediate in size and appearance between a gray wolf and a coyote. Adult female red wolves weigh 40 to 75 pounds, while males weigh from 50 to 85 pounds.

Cool, thx. Ahh I already did that, but I put the numbers more closer, for example: 29.9 KG= 30 KG.
But anyway I will print that, it's good to!
Arabain Wolf
Isn't it Arabian wolf? Just to don't make confusion. Anyway, isn't a BIG mistake.

Yeah. That's a typo - it means the Arabian Wolf (Canis lupus arabs).

Also, I saw that +Soul+ had included the Maned Wolf the weight list. I'm not sure if it's there just for a comparison but the Maned Wolf is not classified in the genus Canis; therefore it is not a "real" wolf.
