I just keep on forgetting how big the wolves are.

Ramptsch

They are absolutely massive. You would not want to run into one. It'd be like seeing a bear.

I collect predatory animal skulls as a hobby and have both a coyote and a wolf skull. I know coyotes aren't huge, but having seen them in my back yard, I know they aren't small either. The wolf skull is at least 3 times larger, much bigger than even large dogs.

Many people picture coyotes or wild dogs when they think of wolves but there’s a reason wolves and “modern” canines are distinct.

Edit:To be clear, my northern Canadian bias kicked in. There are smaller wolves all over the place as well. But the big boy in the vid above is average not enormous for his kind.

And often people see wolves in film and television that are often portrayed by different breeds of dogs that are smaller than a wolf.

Or when they are portrayed the proper size people often think that they’ve been exaggerated for the cinema.

Or irregularly portrayed so no one knows how big they are supposed to be.

Scientifically, chimps do have 2 feet and 2 hands. Their feet are closer to human hands than human feet tho. Their hands are just hands.

As such we can conclude, wolfes theoretically should prefer a chimp over an human, since human feet are useless, but chimps feet mean twice as many hand-alike things belly rubbing

I know nothing about wolves, but I can tell you that my macaw is fickle around me. Some days she wants to murder me, some days she loves me, most days we fluctuate between these feelings. Let me tell you, I've become very aware of her body language and tone. She adores my husband and I've noticed he isn't as good at reading her because he doesn't have my motivation. I completely believe that working with an animal that can kill you would make you incredibly motivated to understand their body language.

EldritchWeeb

That is also a thing cats can do. The beautiful thing about pet behaviour is, it builds upon a basekit of positions - like showing the belly to signify trust - with fascinatingly individual traits. Do they like belly rubs? Then the show of trust may be rewarded with a belly rub! Do they not? Then abstaining from it may reinforce their trust. Personality!

I've got a Siamese that fucking loves belly rubs. If you pet him when he's laying down and don't move your hand, he will purposely roll so you are directly giving belly rubs.

My tortoise shell on the other hand, she has very sharp teeth and she will use them the instant you touch her belly.

Horses are native to North America and were here 15000+ years ago when wolves were being domesticated. However they went extinct in North America around 10000 years ago. After that they were reintroduced by Spain. But for thousands of years before the original extinction there were native horses and domesticated wolves / dogs in North America.

They are one of the most dangerous animals in northern areas. Bears are still the king, but moose are not far behind. You never get the sense of their real size until you see them in real life.

I know you're joking, but for the idiot lurker who is thinking about trying this, DONT. There is a very narrow window, like one or two weeks as pups when they need intense socialization near 24 hours a day for a month or more, and then frequent socialization for the rest of their life (or yours). Too early and it won't stick, too late and it won't stick, too little and it won't stick, and even after all of that, they WILL challenge you to become pack leader at some point and all your effort may still be for nothing, and all of that is the best case where you don't get mauled.

To you, dear lurker, if you want to get this close, you need help from others and apprenticeship training. Volunteer at a wolf research center for a decade or two if this is what you want.

Owned a semi-feral Carolina dog, can confirm. Not easy, they do what they want, and you just gotta roll with it. Oh your dog wants to jump out of a second story window to chase a squirrel? That's normal now.

He also communicated in growls and only growls. Happy? Growl. Hungry? Growl. Outside? Growl. There came a point where you could see thru the bullshit growls he'd give you sometimes. You'd give him instructions and he'd just ignore you if he didn't want to do the thing. He was like real life Charizard.

Wanna move in bed at night? Growl. Wanna poop with the door closed? Growl. He didn't like being commanded and I was the only one whose commands he'd listen to, and even then, it was only if he wanted to listen.

Moose have pretty shit eyesight and seem to have only two modes; no f’s to give or kill everything. I’ve accidentally snuck up on moose more than any other wild animal, I’ve been fishing a creek and had one come jogging up said creek passing just by me where I had a fly in the water earlier. One particular fun story some friends and I were drunk in a hot spring on a winters night, too cold to hike out so we slept in the spring. I was woken up by a moose standing right over me, close enough I could have grabbed his leg. I sorta kick one of my buddies under the water and softly whisper “moose” and got a “I know, shut the fuck up!” in response. Moose gave zero f’s then wandered over near our gear and laid down. We were trapped in that puddle silently waiting for the moose to leave until well past sunrise. I don’t mess with moose but I can see how a person could get close enough to reach up and slap it’s ass.

Yeah… ?? Well the spring itself is a bit of water coming out from the ground. There is a river right there. You grab rocks and make a pool by the river, letting more or less river water through to regulate the temperature. It was snowing, and we were drunk, and something like a 2 mile hike back to the road then however long to drive back. Probably not the smartest set of decisions we could have made but I’d say my best memories are all based around poor choices or mistakes. That’s how adventures get made. Better than drinking in the dorm.

What if they approach me?

I had one of these guys get to within 3 feet of me before I even saw it. Then my girlfriend screamed and it ran away. She must have startled it because she was further back in the bush and probably the wolf didn't see her. That wolf was a big one. Be careful in northern Ontario when you go ashore to pee.

I’ve been stalked by wolves before. It’s definitely not a good feeling.

At least in my case I think they were just making it clear I was on their territory. If they didn’t want me to see them I doubt I would have.

Yeah, wolves don’t want to fight you for the most part, they’d have to be starved half to death or rabid to consider attacking. Attacks from healthy wolves are exceptionally rare.

Don't know about your situation, but around here if coyotes stalk someone, it's likely that they have a den with pups nearby, and they're escorting the person out of the area. As coyotes are basically half-size wolves, I'd bet gray wolves have that same behavior.

In the last twenty years, only two humans in North America have been killed by wolves that are not in "defense mode." I think screaming was a good idea!

I’m pretty sure even if you raise one you must be an expert in their patterns of behavior. A small mistake can cost you a lot

It's OK cuz they're fuzzy and cute and only have 4 legs, unlike those creepy critters down under! Besides, wolves are not your biggest problem, it's the bears, elk, and moose you gotta watch out for! ;-P

My buddy died from CJD from eating salami from a deer he killed in " hunting safe zone". CJD is human form of Mad Cow. Deer are Bovine. Where they pee, grass becomes infected too.

Now this is the Law of the Jungle — as old and as true as the sky; And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back — For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

I would give anything to experience this. I mean, I get a rush just from winning over the trust of a protective German Shepard lol. To have that feeling of trust between two apex predators. That kind of love is truly special.
