The timber wolf is a pack hunter but often seen alone or in pairs. They are almost identical to arctic wolves, differing only in habitat, resistance to cold temperatures and coloration. Timber wolves can be found in temperate forests, temperate swamps, boreal forests, cold bogs, and tundra.


Timber wolves feed on raw meat, corpses, meals, any processed foods, and kibble. When especially hungry, they will frequently attempt to attack, kill, and eat pets or even colonists for food.


Timber wolves can make for good hauling animals and decent attack animals, if you can keep them fed. While they are more wild than a husky, meaning they create more filth and need to be retrained, timber wolves will not be attacked by other predators. You can feed them off meals, and wolves are actually more efficient than huskies when it comes for hunger rate. However, you'll need raw meat or kibble to train them.

Cougars and panthers are easier to tame, need to be retrained less often, and carry more in a single stride (at the same movement speed). They are also stronger in combat, all at the cost of 11% more hunger. However, these cats tend to spawn in warm biomes, while wolves spawn in cold ones.

*As of version 1.1.2610, all animals can be tamed. The percentage of likelihood of success depends on factors such as the Animals Wildness Percentage, Pawn Handling Skill, and others. More information can be found on the animals page.

  1. Coverage determines the chance to hit this body part. It refers to the percentage of the super-part that this part covers, before its own sub-parts claim their own percentage. For example, if the base coverage of the super-part is 100%, and the coverage of the part is 20%, 20% of hits would hit the part, and 80% the super-part. If the part had its own sub-part with 50% coverage, the chances would be 10% sub-part, 10% part, 80% super part.
  2. Target Chance is the actual chance for each part to be be selected as the target when each part's coverage has been taken into account(I.E. Neck covers 7.5% of Torso but Head covers 80% of Neck so it actually has only a 1.5% chance to be selected). This is not pure hit chance, as different damage types propagate damage in different ways. See that page for details.
  3. Note that capacities can affect other capacities in turn. Only the primary effect is listed. See specific pages for details.
  4. This is the part that everything else connects to to be considered 'connected'.
  5. If Moving drops below 16% a pawn cannot move.
  6. A Scratch attack that varies from animal to animal. Each front paw allows one attack.
