Re: Common Themes for Wolf/Wild Animal Fiction?

The wild itself representing the unknown is another big one, in stories that feature both urbanized (known, safe) and wild (unknown, challenging) settings.

Re: Know any cool wolf facts?

"When wolves travel long distances, they use a very efficient gait called the 'direct register trot', also known as 'single tracking'. In this special trot, the hind paws meet the ground in the same place where the front paws did moments before." Elbroch 2003.

Re: Know any cool wolf facts?

These two facts could help introduce players to the concept of common names and scientific names for species: 1. "The wolf species featured in WolfQuest is the grey wolf. The scientific name for the grey wolf is ' Canis lupus '." Linnæus, 1758 . 2. "Despite their common names, both the Ethiopian wo...

Re: Know any cool wolf facts?

"Despite their frozen habitat, the paws of arctic wolves stay just above freezing temperatures due to increased blood flow in their foot pads." Henshaw et al. 1972.

Tried to keep the game's main demographic in mind with the wording :) .

Re: A sixth mass extinction?

People are taking concrete steps towards tackling this problem! Earlier this year, the United Nations released a major report about this. I got to listen to a webinar hosted by one of the report's author's. Aside from the not unexpected broad-scale messages of "action is needed now" and "corporatio...

Re: The Oldest Wolf in the World!

That's a very nice wolf. It seemed to be quite friendly, but why were the humans treating the wolf like a dog? In studies I have read they never treat the wolf like a dog. Madadh was unique in the sense that she was raised by humans from a very early age, mere days old. She also remained at Wolf Wa...

Re: Pokémon

What do you guys think of the new Pokes?

Looks like the Legendaries are woofs!

Drednaw is cool. Corvinight looks cool, but the name and the look remind me of Meta Night!

Re: The Oldest Wolf in the World!

What a gentle girl! Very dog-like in her age (and living conditions of course :P). I saw an interview of that sanctuary recently that featured her in it.

Re: Weird things I found hidden deep inside my computer

Not on my computer per se, but I was re-organizing an email account and found the journal entries of an ex boyfriend from 2013 who I am friends with now. They detailed the miserable time he was having at his family's cottage. I shared them with him for a laugh. He/we have changed so much since then!

Re: Stress, pneumonia revealed to have killed Isle Royale wolves

Thanks, I was wondering what happened to the male who made it to the island after checking out the winter report.

Re: Annual Isle Royale report divulges drama on wolves

Fascinating stuff! The longtime pair look strikingly alike. Interesting that the female consistently rebukes the males advances in recent times. I wonder if it is related to their deformed pup that died; I'm not sure if wolves can make that sort of inference. Something has changed since then anyhow...

Re: WQ 2.7 costs $10. Is it worth it?

Despite WQ 3.0 being a free upgrade if you already bought 2.7, I'd be happy to contribute some more dollars to the new version! Happy to see this project still gaining traction :).
