The Arabian Wolf, a direct descendant of the Grey Wolf, is the smallest of all the wolf species. While the other species of wolves hunt in packs, the Arabian Wolf is an interesting exception. They live and hunt in small groups of three or four across the Arabian Peninsula. 

One of the few carnivores on the prowling the desert, the wolf feeds on hares, rodents, and cats. However, these wolves are a menace to farmers. They often go after livestock and kill small domestic animals like goats and chickens, because of which they are often shot, trapped or poisoned.
