“We know from… DNA studies that these wolves are genetically distinct from their continental kin”

“They are behaviourally distinct, swimming from island to island and preying on sea animals”

The wolves “are smaller in size and physically different from their mainland counterparts”

They are excellent swimmers that can do 7.5 miles in a go

90 percent of their diet is seafood as these creatures live off an ocean
