Re: The "popularity" of wolves

Anthropomorphism, pure and simple, originating from Farley Mowat's Never Cry Wolf . It wasn't the first book to portray wolves positively (Ernest Thompson Seton and Jack London did that), but it set the groundwork for showing wolves as helpless perpetual victims with human emotions and sensibilities...

Hyenas and Wolves Are Teaming Up to Survive

Hyenas and Wolves Are Teaming Up to Survive Esther Inglis-Arkell Different species of carnivores don’t get along. At best, they’re in direct competition for prey. At worst, they turn each other into prey. But recently, zoologists found that two predators are teaming up to both survive and haunt you...

Re: Apex Predator

I guess I wasn't specific enough, I was talking about North Amercia, sorry. Cougars are a problem for wolves, but MOST of the time, wolves come out on top. By big cats, I mean the genus Panthera (lions, tigers, leopards etc.). A cougar can easily kill a wolf. Indeed: Some Relevant information - Dou...

Re: Apex Predator

You have a point there a must admit, but the question mainly focuses on the two specific species. It's true that tigers can dominate those canines due to their huge frame and muscle power. I do really adore those felines. But yet again, if tigers were included in the question I''d choose them. The ...

Re: Apex Predator

Sorry, but wolves are only apex predators where there are no big cats. They're totally dominated by tigers in India and Far Eastern Russia, to the point of being forced to work alone or in small groups.

Re: We might see a dinosaur soon: Meet the Chickenosaurus

Just to clear things up a bit, they're not recreating any previously existing dinosaur. Chickens are already dinosaurs (non-avian ones in any case), and all that's really going to be done is remove the genes inhibiting tail and tooth growth and probably those responsible for fusing the fingers toget...

Re: We might see a dinosaur soon: Meet the Chickenosaurus

Yeah, that's right. Crocodillians belong to the Archosauria group, what means that they are distant cousin of the dinosaurs, but they aren't a dinosaur. Now, about the warm blood thing, that's still not determinated. The evidences poindifficultyt to a completely new physiognomy, due to the difficul...

Re: Dinosaurs

I have to say my favourite dinosaurs are probably Raptors, especially the Utahraptor. (My avvie <33) I sometimes find it annoying when I rewatch the Jurassic Park series because there are so many mistakes, the one that bugs me most is the size of the Velociraptors; in reality they're not that big. ...
