  Listen.  Wolves communicate through sound, smell and body language. Howling has a number of functions – it calls the members of the pack together and plays a large part in socialization and bonding.

Short, rough barks signify fear or a threat, and serve both to warn other pack members and to scare away intruders. Growling is a sign of aggression while whining is used to make contact.

Wolves have a well-developed system of body language to show their moods and position in the hierarchy. Scent is used primarily to mark territory boundaries. The alpha pair in the pack may also use scratch marks to emphasize the limits of their territories.

    Hi Kenny!
     
    Well this all sounds very familiar – Howling calls the pack together  how often to you hear Mum on the beach howling to get the kids and Dad together?   Short rough barks a warning to other pack member ……………… yes I must admit I’ve done that!   And as for communicating by body language and scent…………. well I won’t comment we don’t want your page shut down do we?

  3. I WATCHED A FANTASTIC DVD THE OTHER WEEK ALL ABOUT WOLVES. MY BEST FRIEND’S 6 YEAR OLD SON LENT IT TO ME. HE IS REALLY INTO ALL WILD ANIMALS BUT SEEMS TO BE DEVELOPING A REAL FASCINATION FOR THE WOLF PREDOMINANTLY. THE DVD WAS ENTITLED ‘CALL OF THE WILD’ AND WAS A TWO HOUR DOCUMENTARY ALL ABOUT THESE FASCINATING CREATURES.. I REALLY ENJOYED IT AND IT WAS SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD EASILY WATCH MORE THAN ONCE. HOW WONDERFUL WOULD IT BE TO ABLE TO RUN IN THE WILDERNESS WITH THEM? FOR SOME REASON, WHENEVER I SEE WOLVES ON TV OR A PICTURE OF ONE ANYWHERE, I SEEM TO GET VERY EMOTIONAL AND FEEL AS THOUGH I AM GOING TO START CRYING. I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT IS ALL ABOUT, BUT IT HAS ALWAYS HAPPENED TO ME AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER.
