Ethiopian wolves are the World’s rarest canid and Africa’s most endangered carnivore; fewer than 450 animals survive in a few scattered populations. I spent 5 weeks photographing these beautiful animals in the remote Ethiopian Highlands.
Wolves of the world . One thing, though. Ethiopian wolves are canids, but not actual members of the wolf species. All true wolves (including domestic dogs) are listed under CANIS LUPUS, while the Ethiopian wolf is listed under CANIS SIMENSIS.
