Wolf autopsy

Post by La Striata » Sun Jul 13, 2014 1:07 pm

While this video is certainly not for the squeamish, it is fascinating from an anatomy perspective. For the record, the wolf was a victim of a car collision, not a hunter's bullet.

Woah, really cool videos, thanks for sharing! I wish we could have watched something like this in biology. And some really good muscular references for art.

The head one was particularly fascinating to me.

  • I'll definitely be checking these out when I have the time, and a full stomach^^! Sometimes I hit the deck (literally) when I view graphic content on video vs. live. At least its an animal; I have the most trouble when its a human cadaver.

    Thanks for sharing and giving viewers a warning, La Striata.

I think a bad language warning is also warranted. Dead wolves don't exactly smell good, so naturally the autopsists colour their vocabulary a bit every time they hit certain organs...

  • Ack, I'll have to watch this in small sections. Not being there live makes me woozy when my imagination is left to build off her descriptions :oops:...Actually I'm doing alright!

    EDIT: The narrator's background is really diverse and interesting!
    Graslie was born in Rapid City, South Dakota on June 14th 1989. She earned her bachelor's degree in Studio Art from the University of Montana in 2011. As a part of that program, she interned at the Philip L. Wright Zoological Museum in her senior year.[1] Graslie became a full-time curatorial volunteer after she graduated, while working on her master's degree. She cleaned new specimens, gave tours, trained new interns, and acted as a teaching assistant for a class at the University of Montana.[2]

    In June 2013, Graslie was hired by Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History to become their 'Chief Curiosity Correspondent'. She continues to host "The Brain Scoop" from this new location.
    She did well for her first wolf skinning! Then again, its not her first animal :P.

    EDIT2: They also have Getting the Wolf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-QWxuzuB8E

    EDIT3: The wolf looks so out of place in the fume hood, LOL

    EDIT4: 4:04 of the gutting vid: what a neck, wow!

    EDIT5: Awkward alpha reference is awkward.

The people in the video didn't kill the wolves. It states that it was a car accident. Why leave them on the road when they could be used for science? Besides, if you can't handle the gore, then why did you watch it in the first place? There was a gore warning, not only on this thread but on the videos themselves..

Let's not start the whole wolves vs humans debate again on this thread, please. This is an educational video that has nothing to do with that debate (which has been beaten into the ground at this point), stick to discussing the video itself.
Additionally, it's normal for people to be able to handle gore and still think it's gross... ^^;

Reminds me of the time I had to take apart cat organs for a class, very interesting stuff.
