An Arctic Wolves' gestation period is about fifty-three to sixty-one days. Arctic wolves will give birth to 2-3 pups in May and June, almost a month later than other wolf species. The average number of pups raised in the arctic is lower than the average 5-6 pups born to wolves further south. This could be due to lower temperatures, and the lack of prey. Arctic Wolves have a life span of about seven years, and the females can have pup when they are two to three years old.
