Simple dolmen, quite well preserved, it is composed of an enormous covering stone (length: 4.50 m / width: 3.50 m / thickness: 60 cm), supported by 3 standing stones, 2 m high on a side, 1 m high on the other. The resulting gradiant of the covering stone gives to monument the general silhouette of giant turtle. Like other dolmens, the Wolves' Stone used to be topped of a cairn and was used as a tumb, dedicated to the Neolithic elite.
