Our mascot was a Sea Wolf at the University of Alaska Anchorage
(and a Fluke for the one year I spent in Junuea… worst idea ever).
All three years I was a Sea Wolf I didn’t know they were real!
This National Geographic article has a very cool description of an encounter with some and talks more about them (summary: they are distinct from salmon-eating wolves and get 90% of their food from the ocean).
Another sea creature I’ll have to look for next time we’re paddling in British Columbia or Southeast Alaska! (I didn’t see any in Desolation Sound).
