Wolf and Dog Differences
Wolves rely very heavily on smelling, which is very acute, while dogs use more of their other senses, such as sight for responding to human directions.
Sweden Cancels Wolf Hunt
First of all, I’d like to thank the Swedish and Norwegian governments and people for preserving their wild wolf packs.
The Swedish government stopped a wolf cull this month.
In another new nature documentary, Hidden Kingdoms reminded me of Marc Latham’s ant theory, with small animals shown living just as eventful lives as bigger mammals in the world humans and wolves see and smell.
The grasshopper mouse featured in the first episode was like a little wolf, even howling to communicate and mark its territory.
The mouse also shares the wolf’s tenacity, fighting species much bigger than it, helped by evolving immunity from scorpion and snake venom.
Nepal Mastiff Dog Mountain Photos
There was also some great greenygrey scenery on Marc Latham’s travel25years blog, with a mastiff dog and other animals enjoying a sleepy existence high up in the Himalayas.
There’s also a lot of hard work going on around there though, and it’s a tough place to live, as shown in other photos on the t25y site.
