Wolves are not the best animals. Big cats in general (not specific cats) are the greatest in my opinion. They are more adaptable, sneakier, and stronger. Facts- Big cats live in way more places and in many different climates. They make little to no sound moving, and can get lower to the ground. They are loners ( except for lions) and need more muscle to kill prey.
A pack of wolves can be dropped most places and adapted. If you take a snow leopard and drop it in Africa it will shortly die the heat is too much for them. Take a pack of lions move them to the cold they will die. Wolves move them to the cold they will hunt and not be touched much. Most wolves can be moved most places and not die off they are also very social animals.
This is not true. If you put a pack of wolves in let's say, Africa, they would not know what prey to go after. Wolves have strategies to hunt elk and deer. They have no strategy to hunt wildebeest, zebras, or antelope. Also, the wolves would more than likely be killed by the heat as the loin would in the cold.
