Best Answer

No, but a timber wolf is a grey wolf. The timber wolf is a subspecies of the grey wolf, which also includes Arctic Wolves, Mexican Gray Wolves, domestic dogs and dingoes (domestic dogs are descended from wolves and considered the same species, canis lupus, though a different subspecies; dingoes are themselves descended from domestic dogs and are also considered canis lupus).
