WOLVES

"There are a lot of examples of wolves bringing food to their old/injured(...)" Can you give a source? I know it's true, but I'd like to give a source to my friend who didn't believe me, saying: "wolves would probably kill or leave the old/injured ones, and most likely they wouldn't bother to feed them".(I also remember one docu. where one wolf from a pack was constantly stopping and waiting for another, limping one, even when the pack was moving way ahead of them, one wouldn't leave another)

Oh dear, I know I read about this several times and saw it in wildlife documentaries, but I can’t recall any of them at the moment D8 I’ll try to find some examples for you, but in the mean time maybe some of my followers could help you out as well? ^^ I know for sure it’s in the book “Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation" sooomewhere, and in some documentaries I can’t recall the name off right now, let me think!

By the way, just thought I’d mention this; you and your friend are both right to some extend. If a wolf passes away, there is a really big change the rest of the pack will eat the dead wolf - food is food. Wolves are extremely opportunistic carnivores, and they will not miss a chance at a meal. Living in some of the most unforgiving terrain on the planet, they are sometimes forced to eat sick or injured members of the pack, and any wolf that has died is generally fair game. Note that usually they only eat another wolf if that wolf is dead already – it’s not like when they’re hungry, pack mates will just go kill and eat each other.

Do unrelated wolves ever interact or join packs outside of mating? Like do wolves make friends lol

Yes! :)

Hi! I was wondering what a pack will do with a wolf who has gotten old and unable to hunt. Do they get food for it or abandon it? Thank you!

Hi! In the wild, wolves will usually take great care of old and/or injured pack mates, since natural wolf packs typically are an extremely close family existing out of wolves that are all related to each other, with an unconditional love for one another. There are a lot of examples of wolves bringing food to their old/injured friends and even pre-chewing meat for them :)

Do you know what happens to a wolf cub's milk teeth? Do they fall out as their adult teeth naturally come just as people's do?

Yes!

Adult dentition is in place at about 6-7 months of age.

Wolf pups are born in the spring, inbetween march and april. Studies showed that wolf pups in northeastern Minnesota retained their deciduous upper canines in mid-September. but eruption of permanent canines was seen as early as 18 august. Upper canines were fully in place by November.

you have a skateboard! :D are you any good with it?

I used to board a lot and went to skate parks and stuff but a few years ago I fell and got operated on my knee. If I fuck up one more time it might kill my knee for good so I’m not taking that risk anymore. But I do still just ride it without doing stupid things ^^
