phylum Chordata The Hokkaidō wolf, known in Japan as the Ezo wolf (エゾオオカミ(蝦夷狼)), is one of the two extinct subspecies of Canis lupus that have been called the Japanese wolf. The other is the Honshū wolf.

This endemic wolf of Japan occupied the island of Hokkaidō. The Hokkaidō wolf was larger than the Honshū wolf, more closely approaching the size of a regular gray wolf.
