Notes on wolves; part I


I want to start writing short notes on the life of wolves as I read about them and watch them. I don’t have a chance to spend lots of time next to real wolves yet; so the only information source I can rely on is internet; thus my opinions will be surely flawed. That said; I will try to make my notes reasonable and useful not only for me.

It’s curious to see how young wolves play. They tend to grab each other by the snout fur; occasionally holding the whole opponent’s snout in their jaws; but mostly going for the fur at sides of the head; sometimes ears. The don’t bite hard; as tugging on ears would be really painful. Other prominent targets are the scruff and sides; sometimes hind legs and tail.

Wolves do dig holes in the ground when the weather is hot; not unlike dogs. They usually go two swipes with each of the front paws; changing them as they dig.

Curious wolves usually focus on the object that inspired their curiosity; moving very little; standing or sitting; all focused on their target. They rarely twitch ears when at that and overall are rather immobile.
