Re: captive and wild wolves

The only reason that I could think that the terms alpha, beta, etc. would be used with some captive packs is because captive packs are sometimes wolves put together because they get along and they have to sort out among themselves where they fit in the pack. In a natural pack that hasn't had any int...

Re: How would a wolf indicate that a stranger wolf was close?

I agree with Canidae, the first thing that came to my mind was that the subordinate would use the bark-howl to let the pack know. That call seems to be used as an alarm call.

Re: Types

Humans and wolves would go WAY back into the line of evolution if that is what you are looking for. In classification we separate at mammals.

Re: Wolf Eyes

As far as I know a wolfs' eyes can move independently of the head like ours. So they don't have to completely turn their head like an owl does. Thats the whole reason an owl has learned to move its head about 180 degrees so that it can see all around itself. And by the black part do you mean the bla...

Re: Uhhhh.

Well the grey wolf is usually more forest, mountainous areas, like the Rocky Mountains. The northwest America really shows their habitat. Usually when I think of grey wolves I think of the coniferous forest.
The mexican wolf I believe is in more dry areas of the south, grasslandish, but also forested.

Re: Mourning/Sad Howls

I don't think they do, I only hear of mourning howls in stories or roleplay, but I haven't heard it actually talked about by experts.

Re: Wolves ancestors

I don't know anything about wolves evolving from whales..as far as I'm know they evolved from a mammal-like reptile. Here is a timeline I found: http://www.searchingwolf.com/wevolve.htm From what I have heard, whales evolved from a land wolf-like creature that was not a wolf and was actually a carni...

Re: Coyotes--the incredible adaptive canid

I think coyotes are cool, but I noticed the coyotes in my area looked alittle odd..and too large, but the coyote features were unmistakable. Of course then later I found out that the coyotes were breeding with dogs >.<! So I have coyote-dog hybrids running around. Apparently they are called Coydogs ...
