Species information

Native range

Once worldwide, now confined to mostly northern areas.

Wolves are a species of canine closely related to the domestic dog.[1] A human affected with lycantrophy will turn into a wolf-like being known as a werewolf every full moon. It appears to be a staple of the Hogwarts Defence Against the Dark Arts curriculum to teach the difference between a werewolf and the true wolf; it was a question on the 1976 Ordinary Wizarding Levels[2], and Severus Snape taught it as part of a lesson on werewolves during a lesson he was teaching as a substitute in 1993.[3]
