yep. even if the wolf is white, it doesn't mean that it'll have blue eyes. thats what most people want to think though

No Offense, but are you sure the blue-eyed wolves aren't just white huskeies?

no no no no, what I mean is that many MANY people roll-play being wolves with blue eyes. ever since, people have been thinking "well, that means wolves can have blue eyes!" but its not true. it isnt possible for a wolf to have blue eyes unless its part husky, or any other kind of dog

Oops, uh, Rip-Tide666, I was talking to Cowgirl101. I agree though. And again, in the intrest of facts:
"THE WOLF ALMANAC" by Robert H. Busch, Published year: 2007:

pg. 83:
Pups eyes "gradually change to a yellow-gold by eight to sixteen weeks, though sometimes their eyes can change color much later. Occasionally, a mature wolf will be found with (pg.84) blue eyes. (One male wolf at Wolf Haven, near Tenino, Washington, recently reached the age of fifteen years without his eyes ever changing from a light blue color.)"

They use a lot of huskies in wolf movies. If you watch one with me, I will tell you every time when its a husky or a wolf. Hate it when the do that.

AshWolf
oh, I see x3 I agree, I do that a lot. Its very easy to tell when a wolf has husky in it -_- very annoying

It's worse when they use pure shepherds or huskies. Ugh! Like in "The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story" almost all the "wolves" were dogs. Sheesh!

I agree. The only blue-eyed wolf I ever created out-grew his. And he only had blue eyes because I had two black wolves, and was a bit immature.

Immature?

Well I see a dog and I know what a dog is and what a wolf is. I can have a friend over and that friend can tell me that if the K9 is a wolf or not.

Role Playing is not real.

Wolves can have yellow, blue, brown and onrange-ish eyes.

Yes, that's all true, Cowgirl:
"THE WOLF ALMANAC" by Robert H. Busch, Published year: 2007:

pg. 83:
Pups eyes "gradually change to a yellow-gold by eight to sixteen weeks, though sometimes their eyes can change color much later. Occasionally, a mature wolf will be found with (pg.84) blue eyes. (One male wolf at Wolf Haven, near Tenino, Washington, recently reached the age of fifteen years without his eyes ever changing from a light blue color.)"
But most wolves outgrow their blue eyes, so its kind of a puppy thing. And Cian's in my story, not role-play.
