Something interesting about wolves' diet.

When wolf cubs find raspberry bushes, they nibble on them, as well as pine buds in winter. No doubt they eat berries because they like them

Technically speaking, wolves are carnivores - they belong to the order Carnivora. However, bears also belong to this order, and the diet of most bears is primarily vegetation.

In practice, wolves are mostly carnivorous - the majority of their diet is meat. They are more omnivorous than tigers, say, which eat nothing but meat - wolves do eat fruit, berries and so on from time to time, but it makes up a small part of their total food.

Certain other canids, such as red foxes, are much more omnivorous. Nearly half their diet may be vegetable matter.

    Way cool! Except that in the top video, they're not eating raspberries. Those are rose hips. :)

    And the video titled "Wolves eating strawberries" shows one single wolf eating raspberries. Umm... maybe some revision might be in order? ;)

    Again very cool but like someone said those are rose hips in the top video. Plus in the bottom video those are raspberries. Are we positive those are wolves?

    Yes we are pretty sure those are wolves. The coloration on their coats suggest that. And the broadens of the muzzled. Coyotes are much smaller
