Wolves and dogs are separated by 15,000 years of evolution, during which time the species have veered off into radically different directions. Dogs still retain many of their ancestral behaviors, but less is known about any latent “dog-like” tendencies among modern wolves. A new study of human-raised wolf pups…
Yes, Rebels head honcho Dave Filoni has seemingly confirmed some very important news about Ahsoka Tano’s role in the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels. Mainly that for the love of god no, she’s not a wolf. Confused? You absolutely should be. Buut allow us to explain...
How many species of North American wolf are there? Trick question. There’s actually only one, and he’s angry that you’re infringing on its territory (or so I’ve heard).
Fuck, you guys. It’s late in the day here on the East Coast, I just paid my credit card bill, and I have to go home and deal with the wasp nest I found in my living room this morning. But I’m not alone in my misery, and neither are you. Allow me to introduce you to a lazy ass wolf who sounds like Chewbacca after…
Last Friday, Joanne Barnaby went mushroom picking in a forest near Fort Smith in the Canadian Northwest Territories. It was an inauspicious beginning to what would end up being a 12-hour ordeal, one involving a desperate wolf, swarms of mosquitoes, an unwitting bear cub—and a can of beer.
Bodypaint artist Johannes Stötter is famous for hiding the human body in the shape of animals with the perfect amount of shading and the right mixture of paint. This time he painted three women into a sculpture of a wolf. If you’re looking closely, you can see the shape of the person on the wolf’s belly and back but…
The precise origin of our canine companions is mired in controversy. But a new study suggests that dogs emerged from not one but two different populations of ancient wolves. What’s more, this dual domestication happened on opposite sides of the Eurasian continent.
This soundtrack was recorded in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. Imagine hearing this at night, in the woods; it’ll send a tingle up your spine.
The dog lives, but this video is still a graphic and potentially disturbing look inside what a wolf attack really looks like.
Researchers have confirmed that these five wolf pups — born this spring — are the first born wild in California in over 100 years. Along with their mommy and daddy, they form the newly dubbed “Shasta Pack.” Wolves now call California home again.
High-End camping gear maker Nemo promises to make sleeping outside more comfortable than ever. Cannondale is releasing a road bike fitted with a lightweight version of its “Lefty” front suspension and a second wolf has left Oregon for the sunny climes of California. Here’s what’s new outside.
A stretching coyote emulates just the right yoga pose in this shot taken near Yellowstone Lake on March 27, 2015. Though the coyote population in Yellowstone declined after the reintroduction of wolves in the mid-1990s, recent data has shown their numbers are on the rise.
Around 100 red wolves roam wild in North Carolina, but not for much longer if the state government has its way. Pending federal approval, they plan to round them up and force them into captivity.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has added the Mexican gray wolf, Canis lupus baileyi, to its list of endangered species, albeit with some odd caveats.
Did you know there were wolves roaming freely in North Carolina? Neither did we, so we set out to learn more about this rarest of canids: the Red Wolf.
The alpha wolf is a figure that looms large in our imagination. The notion of a supreme pack leader, who fought his way to dominance and reigns superior to the other wolves in his pack, is huge in pop culture. And this idea informs how many people understand wolf behavior. But the alpha wolf doesn't exist—at least,…
We like to joke that no one will ever dare break into our house. Wiley, our dog, sits on the front porch and howls about ten times a day, loud enough that you can easily hear it up to six blocks away. But why does he do it? Why do dogs howl?
OR7, the wolf who journeyed from northeast Oregon to California, found a mate and has just sired these three puppies. They're the first born anywhere near California in at least 100 years and these are the first pictures of them.
Call them what you want — Coywolf, Coyote/Wolf Hybrid, Freakin' Terrifying — but the fact is, we've got a new predator and it lives in our forests, our suburbs and even our cities.
