Re: Old Wolves

Thank you for clarifying that, Canidae. ^^
Again, thanks to everyone who helped me out -- I don't think I have any further questions about wolf coats for now.

Re: Old Wolves

Thanks, Pawnee!!
So it's kind of like premature gray hair in humans, right?
Also, are white/light-furred timber wolves born light-colored or are all "white" timber wolves old and used to have black/agouti gray pelts?
In other words, are the only light-colored timber wolves aging individuals?

Re: Old Wolves

Wow, thanks for the help, CLBaileyi!! Yeah, I noticed that when I was looking at Monty Sloan's wolf photos: Older wolves like Chetan and Seneca were a buffy cream color with faint traces of their natural pelt color (agouti gray), as with Kiri, an old faded black wolf. I like your signature, by the w...

Re: Old Wolves

Oooooooh, that's interesting. I can't thank you enough!! It'll also help make the story a little longer... bwahaha. back on topic... About how old are wolves when their fur starts fading? Is it really 4 years, because that seems a little young. (about 33 years in large dog breeds, according to Anima...

Re: Old Wolves

Thank you so much, Sintact! This is a big help. At first, I was thinking of having most of the protagonist's pack killed by their rivals, save for a few 7-month old pups and some of her adult siblings (around 2-3 years). But I guess that wouldn't be realistic, even if the other pack's leader is temp...

Re: Old Wolves

Thanks for the help, everyone!! I've decided to darken his markings a little so that they're more of a tan/lighter brown color rather than buffy white, to keep it a little more realistic. After reading your comments and looking up wolf coat colors godknowshowmany times, I'm pretty sure that black-fu...

Re: Wolf Documentaries

Oh yeah, now I remember. Thanks! It was a good documentary, but they were a little outdated because they used rank names like alpha, beta, and omega. I have a coffee-table book, Spirit of the Wolf, by Shaun Ellis (that British guy that lived with a wild wolf pack [for stufy purposes, I think]) with...

Re: New Minor Version of Game Released

Yay! A new bugfix! Admittedly, it is annoying for me not to use capital letters or apostrophes, but I'll have to bear with it. Being safe is more important than being grammatically correct. I agree, people were swearing a lot . I've seen lots of players drop the F bomb or say the S word. I'm glad th...

Re: Wolf Documentaries

One of my favorite wolf documentaries is Living with Wolves, by Jim and Jamie Dutcher. Have any of you seen it? =) It's quite long, about two hours minus commercial time. I saw that documentary! It's the one with Kamots and Wyakin and everyone, right? And where they release them into the wild? It w...

Re: Why blue eyes?

I love the color purple, first of all, but it's totally unnatural for almost any eye color. I would like to have purple eyes, but I'm fine with my plain ol' brown ones. :D I admit that I do like blue eyes on certain animals, including canids, but it's really unnatural looking in most wolves. I prefe...

Re: Old Wolves

Thanks Canidae, but I was talking about a black wolf lighter markings around his muzzle and on his chest. The picture was helpful, though! Kind of like the wolf in the background: http://www.wolfphotography.com/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=98-056B-33A&Category_Code= Or like the black wolf ...

Old Wolves

I was looking at photos on Monty Sloan's wolf photography website (wolfphotography.com) and saw that the older wolves like Seneca and Imbo (the leader of the Pillow Pack) have faded pelts, that is, their fur has gotten whiter over the years. It's kind of like how aging humans start to get gray or w...
