The grey wolf, or common wolf (Canis lupus) are typically apex predators throughout their range, with only humans and tigers posing significant threats to them. Genetic studies reaffirm that the grey wolf is the ancestor of the dog. Though once abundant over much of Eurasia, North Africa and North America, the grey wolf inhabits a reduced portion of its former range due to widespread destruction of its territory, human encroachment, and the resulting human-wolf encounters.
