Wolves

A carnivore related to the jackal and domestic dog, two species of wolves are recognized. One is C. lupus, the gray or timber wolf, which was once widely distributed in North America, Europe, and Asia. The other is Canis lupus rufus, the red wolf, which now only occurs in northeastern North Carolina and on St. Vincent's Island off the Gulf Coast of Florida.

What is a Tenor's Friend?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It’s a surgical support, also known as a truss. Operatic tenors were commonly believed to be at risk of hernias due to the pressure that singing put on the abdominal muscles (which is in fact medically true, but relatively rare). To prevent this happening or stop the hernias growing one they had occurred, you could wear a truss- a kind of leather patch covering the area. Hence the “Tenor’s Friend”.

Where can one hear wolves howl?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Wolves usually howl in packs and Human Beings can usually hear wolves howl up to a distance of a round three miles away. So if one is within a three mile radius of a pack of wolves one will be lucky enough to hear the howling sounds. Some people claim that one can hear the sound from up to six miles away but that would probably mean the weather would be pretty good and the terrain also would have to be fairly visible.

Why do wolves urinate in their water?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Your question makes an assumption: Specifically, that wolves urinate in their water. However, that assumption isn't necessarily true if we're considering deliberate urination. Also, what is meant by the term "their" water? As opposed to another wolf's water? Do you mean water in a dish as opposed to running in an outdoor stream? Are these domesticated or wild wolves? Male or female?

Wild wolves do not intentionally contaminate their water supplies with urine. Since wolves are not fearful of standing or moving water, and will enter bodies of water without hesitation (in pursuit of prey, or simply for playful purposes), it is not going to be uncommon to see wolves in and around water. Females, when during estrus, will shed blood and other fluids into water, and alpha males will leg-hike urinate to mark territory and dominance at almost anytime and at any place - even while in and around water (although the effectiveness of marking running water is questionable, we can assume that the male wolf's aim isn't all that deliberate all of the time, or necessarily accurate, either).

Captive wolves (and other lupus animals, like coyotes and dogs, both wild and domesticated), will sometimes urinate in their water bowls or watering troughs. Again, this is likely due to marking and dominance display, but the additional factor of stress also comes into play due to the captivity situation.

Why are the wolves friends to humans?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

why are the wolves friends to humans

Wolves are believed to be ancestors of the native American culture, they are believed to have been reincarnated from the wolves and so wolves are at peace with humans because they are the native American peoples ancestors.

I wouldn't say the wolves and humans are friends, considering how humans have killed so many wolves for no other reason than that they are wolves. Likewise while it is rare for wolves to attacks and kill humans it does happen occasionally; and even in these cases human activity is the root cause.

As long as the two species keep respect for each other they can maintain a neutral relationship, however it is usually humans that break the peace.

Are gray wolves dangerous to humans?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, they tend to avoid humans.
Wolves are predators that eat meat, so it's quite possible that wolves could attack and kill a human. However, a wolf pack's main food sources are deer, caribou, rabbits, elk, & moose. Sometimes they eat berries, birds, beaver, fish, and insects also.

While it is possible for wolves to kill humans, it is rather unlikely. For one thing, wolves prefer deer or forest prey over humans, and as long as there is something for them to hunt in the woods, they will have little reason to come after humans. It's only when we cut down the forests, or kill too many of the animals wolves need to survive that they venture onto farms where humans keep sheep or cattle, or near homes where humans live.

All large predators are capable of killing a human, but few of them do. It usually happens when the predators have few places to hunt or few animals to hunt. This is exactly why we must balance our uses of the forest against the needs of those who have to live there. Wolves help maintain a proper balance between themselves and other species so that no one kind of animal can take over. For instance, if there were no wolves, deer could take over and destroy habitat due to over grazing.

As long as we respect that a wolf will do what he must to survive for reasons of pure instinct alone, we can modify our uses of forest resources so that there will be little need for them to come looking to put us on the menu.

Why do wolves mate in spring?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

They are born in the spring because that's the time in which every other animal is giving birth, making it the safest time for the pups to be born.

another reason is that by winter the pups will have enough fur to survive and their mother could teach them to hunt
