What do you think...do you think these wolves are really that big? Warning: dead wol pictures. This is about how large the animal is...not really about the dead animal itself or how it died.

Those just seem like pretty big animals to me... most wolves are roughly 60-80 pounds and much smaller than wha most people imagine. These guys seem really large...what do you think? fake or real?

I say the first couple are fake, but the last one looks somewhat real. But it's very hard to tell real from fake nowadays with all this photo editing and whatnot.

The first one in my opinion is definitely fake. It just looks like it's edited. The second one, probably edited as well. Where those two pictures are out of focused and unclear, it just doesn't seem likely that it's real.

The last one however, does not look edited to me. But as shadowwolf said, it's hard to distinguish what's real or not these days, with all that sophisticated technology. Anyways, where the picture is pretty good quality, it seems more believable than the first to photos.

However, who knows. They may all be real, it's just really hard to tell and also hard to believe that wolves can actually get to that size. I mean, the wolves in those pictures are gigantic, actually a point to where it's a scary kind of big O.o

I'm not sure I want to look...sorry. @_x I can be sensitive about those things.

And this is coming from a guy who helps chop up dead cows for tiger food. Odd.

It's nothing graphic, Canidae, each picture is just a guy holding up a wolf.

Here's another picture I found on Google: http://media.ebaumsworld.com/picture/md ... olf001.jpg

Not as big as the pictures pawnee posted, but big all the same. This one looks believable to me.

After doing some research, the first picture is a real world record wolf, the man shot it with a bow and it supposedly weighed 230 LBS

Wow, 230 pounds? That's amazing, I didn't think wolves could ever reach even close to that size. Is that information true though? Was it an actual record, or is that just a fake statement?

They are real, cause awhile ago, either it was my mom or the news that said that these guys killed wolves that were bigger then they were

Is a blog site, I am on my iPod so I didn't really search official press but if you search the AP I'm sure you find it, the second post has a lot of information on it, it says hasn't been photoshopped.

The first two look very fake,but the last one seems to be real.The last one looks like the wolves would be the right size for an actual wolf if they were on all fours.

The first two do look fake, but in today's world, who knows?
As for the last photo, I'd say real.

I don't really know what to say,they all look quite real...
As for the 230 lb wolf,I would put that along with the legend of Big Foot,I am completely sure it isn't true.The largest wolf ever recorded weighed about 197lb,and I think it is quite impossible for a wolf to reach such weight...

That was the weight of the wolf when it was shot with an empty stomach. The 230 was an estimate of what it would weigh with a full stomach.

I'd say all are fake except the last one, though the one on the right looks more like a husky than a wolf.....
