Transcript of Wolves
Wolves are my favorite animal!
Wolves howl to assemble the pack, to pass on an alarm , to locate each other during a storm or unfamiliar territory and to communicate across great distances. Wolf howls can under certain conditions be heard over areas of up to 130 km2 (50 sq mi)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is the largest member of the canine family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb), and females 36–38.5 kg (79–84.9 lb). It is similar in general appearance and proportions to a German shepherd, or sled dog, but has a larger head, narrower chest, longer legs, straighter tail and bigger paws. Its winter fur is long and bushy, and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, or brown to black also occur.The gray wolf is one of the world's most well researched animals, with probably more books written about it than any other wildlife species!
Where do they live?
Gray wolves are vastly spread!!!!! in fact, they are one of the most widely spread land mammals on the whole planet! They cover most of the Northern Hemisphere!!!!!!!!!!!
The Gray wolf, or "Canis Lupus", are very interesting animals, they can live in a vast range of environments , and are greatly suited to their surroundings!
It may not seem it, but the wolf pack is full of laws and hierarchy, there are two alphas, a male and a female they are the leaders of the pack, then comes the betas, they are second in command, then comes the juveniles and pups, now the juveniles, can range any where from scout to caretaker, Scouts are responsible for warning the Pack of dangerous territory outside the boundaries,the caretaker, is the wolf that shows interest and skill in caring for weakened pack mates. They also watch over the older or ill wolves of the Pack, the Caretaker of the Pack ensures when any wolf is wounded, they recover properly not putting to much stress on their wounds, the pups however remain "the pack pups" until they reach maturity , now after this, there is the omegas these are the bottom ranks, the scapegoat in the group, they don't get a big share of food and in some cases go without, when food is scares!
So that was my presentation on the great and powerful wolf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I hope you enjoyed it??????????
Wolves and humans
wolves have a long history with humans, having been despised and hunted in most agricultural communities due to attacks on livestock, wolves and humans haven't exactly got on over the years, they were almost hunted to extinction in the 16th century! And they haven't exactly had a good place in human folk law ether, i.e. werewolves, a monstrous beast that lived it's life as a human, and on the full moon would "turn" and go on a feeding frenzy! Ridiculous obviously, but over the years we have learned to love and protect wolves rather than scapegoat them.
This is RIDICULOUS!
Now, we all know that wolves howl at the moon right?................well let me tell you......IT'S A MYTH! Wolves don't actually howl at the moon, why would they?
IT'S A MYTH!
I wonder whats for lunch....
