Canis dirus skull cast replica 

Dire Wolf Thriving during the Pleistocene, the Dire Wolf is not a direct ancestor of any of today's known species of canine. They once co-existed in North America with Grey Wolves. Dire Wolves had short, thick legs, a larger, broader skull and more massive teeth than the modern wolves. Their brain case is also notably smaller than their remaining canine cousins. Current belief is that they were likely scavengers rather than hunters. Remains of over 3,600 individuals have been recovered from the La Brea tar pits - more than any other species of mammal. This may also be an indication of their preying in packs on dead or incapacitated animals that were themselves trapped in the mire.
