Wolf, voor de natuur, Saxifraga - Jan Nijendijk.5097.jpg

The largest of Old World grey wolves, the Eurasian wolf (Canis lupus lupus), otherwise known as the common wolf, European wolf, or Middle Russian forest wolf, is native to Europe and the forest and steppe zones of the former Soviet Union. It was once widespread throughout Eurasia prior to the Middle Ages. Aside from an extensive paleontological and genetic record, Indo-European languages typically have several words for wolf, thus attesting to the animal's abundance and cultural significance. It was held in high regard in Baltic, Celtic, Slavic, Turkic, ancient Greek, Roman, and Thracian cultures, whilst having an ambivalent reputation in early Germanic cultures.
