Re: Ethiopian wolves discussion.

I can't speak for the IWC, but this discussion ended up bringing up more questions for me than answers. I thought a lot about it and this is what I've come up with: Ecological, morphological, and behavioral (and not genetic) constraints define the different species in the Canis genus. Coyotes and wo...

Re: Ethiopian wolves discussion.

La Striata, you are way too bossy to argue with, as I've seen from your previous posts in this thread. I just wanted to clear up that your suggesting Ethiopian wolves are not "wolves" is inaccurate from a genetic standpoint. Ethiopian wolves ARE wolves. To answer the question you repeatedly pose of ...

Re: Ethiopian wolves discussion.

Unless you're willing to classify coyotes and golden jackals as wolves, then Ethiopian wolves are not wolves . Look at this graph on canid genetics: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v438/n7069/images/nature04338-f10.2.jpg As you can see, the coyote and golden jackal are just behind the wolf (me...

Re: Have you ever seen a WILD Coyote?

I live in the foothills near the city, and I see coyotes all the time! I think it's crazy how many coyotes live around here. Sometimes I worry that developers will build over the land where the coyotes live (because there is not much of it) :(

Re: What would u do if you see a wolf pup

I have actually known a few people who had wolves or wolf dogs as pets (and a few fakers who thought their dog was part wolf, but even I in my limited knowledge could tell it wasn't.) My mom when she was a little girl had a half malamute half wolf dog. She told me stories about how she would climb u...

Re: What would u do if you see a wolf pup

I would keep it as a pet! But it probably wouldn't be a very good pet...more like a partner! I would have to change my whole life to live with this wolf. I would have to move somewhere with a big enclosure for the wolf to play in. I would have to work really hard to train the wolf to live with peopl...

Re: Would you live with wolves if you had a chance to?

There was a time when I would say, "Yes! Throw me in with the wolves! Even if they are wild and eat me I won't care, I will be with the wolves forever..." But now that I am a little older, I have to say, no. *shame* :oops: People are people and wolves are wolves. Even if you could live like a wolf t...
