Transcript of Wolves

Wolves
Communication
Wolves talk in many different ways. Wolves have very expressive faces, a fearful wolf tucks its ears back and covers it's teeth with a meek smile
If a wolf is threatened or afraid, it'll put its
ears back and bare it's teeth and let its tongue
roll out like a slithering snake. These facial messages help show other pack mates their emotions. Wolves also use 'tail talk'. If a wolf's tail is raised and slightly curving up at the end, (like a husky tail) the wolf is happy or sure of itself, if the tail is dropped and is curved at the end the wolf is probably trying to be friendly. If it's tail is tucked between the legs, he/she is affraid. Howls are also used to keep the pack together.
Members of the Pack
All positions in the pack are important. Each wolf has a rank with jobs they have to follow. Some wolves are dominant, and others are submissive. The omega is picked on by all members of the pack. They can be bothered so much, they leave the pack.
Colourful Coats
Although known as the gray wolf, it's coat is anything except plain gray. The variety of coat colours range from pure black to pure white, with shades of red, yellow, tan, silver, and even brown in between. Any of these colours can occur within the very same family.
Dog Years
A wolf roamed the earth over one million years ago. Wolves evolved (or formed) from carnivores and the dire wolf, around 6 million years ago!! The canids, which are wolves, dogs, and their relatives, separated from the felids, which are like cats and their relatives, close to 20 million years ago.
Offspring
Nine weeks after mating season, pups are born. Wolf pups grow very quickly, 15 days after birth, they weigh 4 pounds. At three weeks they begin to play inside the den. Two weeks later weighing 13 pounds, they have started leaving the den and wandering outside with the watchful eye of their mom. Now, the mother will try to get them off drinking milk, now she and other adult pack members will get the pups to start solid food by regurgitating semi-digested food directly in their mouth or on the ground in front of them. Eventually, the pups will be old enough for the adults to bring them food from a recent kill. At around 2 years old, the pups leave mom permanently and join the pack to hunt.
Alpha
The alpha is the most powerful male in the pack. He has forceful personalities. The
alpha is a tough role.
When the alpha male, and alpha female have pups, one of them is the future alpha. Although of this 'royal' blood, one of the alpha's son/daughters can become omega when an adult.

The dire wolf video is by....... James Bush
The Dire Wolf
The dire wolf was like a wolf on steroids. It was a much more muscular, strong and brave wolf. It lived during just after the ice age, it also lived in packs made up of 30 wolves!
The Dire Wolf - continued
Scientists believe one of the causes to extinction was tar. This tar is where horses would accidently cross. The dire wolf loved horses to dine on. Following these horses in tar, the wolves would get stuck and die.
Youtube is where we got the dire wolf video and the hunting video

Hunting
Wolves have the wierdest hunting techniques, and so many of them. One technique is the pack will work together to scare a group/herd of animals to get them running, then run in for the kill!! They often hunt alone to catch small animals, but they usually will join together to hunt a large animal.
Alyssa's Thoughts....
Charlize's Thoughts...
My thoughts about this project are:
Prezi is awesome
I am glad we are doing wolves
And I want to do this the whole entire YEAR!!!!!!!! :)

I love wolves! I am so happy Charlize agreed to doing this project with me, and that she also wanted to do wolves. This project means so much to me, with all the designing, editing, creating, this website creates your ideal presentaion! This will be a Prezi-Project to remember!!!!! :D (Charlize over reacted with the cute pics, I kept it simple)

Diet
Wolves are carnivores. The diet of a wolf is mainly large mammals, but they also will eat small mammals, and sometimes even berries, fish, and insects.
Facts About Wolves
