Behavior and Communication Pt. 2

Posted by Gabrielle Walker on Sunday, November 29, 2009, In : How to be a Wolf 

Communication

Body Postures

Wolves communicate not only by sound (such as yipping, growling, and howling), but also by body language. This ranges from subtle signals-such as a slight shift in weight-to the obvious, like rolling on the back as a sign of submission.

Here are some other examples of Body postures:

Dominance - A dominant wolf stands stiff legged and tall. The ears are erect and forward, and the hackles bristle slightly. Often the tail is held vertical and curled t...

Relationships With Other Animals

Posted by Gabrielle Walker on Sunday, November 29, 2009, In : How to be a Wolf 

Animals the wolf may come in contact with are:

Coyotes - They will avoid wolves most times. but when encounters occur they are aggressive.

Grizzly bears - Are known to eat wolf pups, wolves will chase away bears from the den area.

Cougars - Although rare in nature, the cougar being a lone hunter is at a disadvantage in a fight with a wolf pack.

Foxes - Foxes have been observed stealing from wolf kills, wolves have been know to steal fox dens, wolves have been known to kill foxes, though i...

Rank: Establishment and Loss

Posted by Alpha Female on Sunday, November 29, 2009, In : Additional Rank Info 
ESTABLISHING RANK
Rank order is established and maintained through a series of ritualized fights and posturing best described as ritual bluffing. Wolves prefer psychological warfare to physical confrontations, meaning that high-ranking status is based more on personality or attitude than on size or physical strength. Rank, who holds it, and how it is enforced varies widely between packs and between individual animals. In large packs full of easygoing wolves, or in a group of juvenile wolves, r...

Hunting Technique

Posted by Alpha Female on Sunday, November 29, 2009, In : Additional Rank Info 
Wolves kill only to eat - to survive. Because wolves usually hunt for large animals, (although wolves are opportunistic and will eat smaller prey) they work together to catch their prey. Wolves will eat a healthy, strong animal if they can catch it.(Wolves need an average of three to ten pounds of meat each day).

Hunting is not always successful, so their bodies are designed to feast (eat a lot)or famine (eat nothing). Wolves can eat as much as 22 pounds of meat at a time and then may not eat ...

Sustaining the Pack

Posted by Alpha Female on Monday, November 23, 2009, In : Important Business 
I am an Alpha that does not care about numbers. I would much rather have a pack of 3 good rping, active, competent wolves than a pack of 20 wild, disrespectful, post anything type wolves.

In saying that, I will not apologize or retract and revise the "oh so strict" rules that I have in place here. I will also not allow anyone into the pack simply because they ask to join. I enjoy the peaceful life we are currently living. If certain criteria that I ask for is not met, if you are already in the...

Chat Password and Login

Posted by Alpha Female on Sunday, November 22, 2009, In : Important Business 
Occasionally it will be necessary to change the login and/or password to the Pack Chat. Some reasons why this could be done would include:
  • Banishing a wolf from the pack
  • An enemy finding their way into the clearing
  • Too many strangers that have no intention of becoming a member of the pack are lingering around
When a password change happens, don't panic. Instead:
  • Ask an Alpha or Beta for the pass ((nicely))
  • Be patient if no Alpha or Beta is online
  • Continue to keep the pass a secret, even if a fellow ...

Behavior and Communication Pt. 1

Posted by Alpha Female on Friday, November 20, 2009, In : How to be a Wolf 

    Communicating by Gesture

  1. Wolves use body language to demonstrate their dominance or submission, emotions and state of mind. To show dominance, an alpha male, or sometimes an alpha female, will stand taller than the other wolves and carry their tails higher than other members of the pack. They will look directly into the other animal's eyes. A submissive wolf will maintain a lower body profile, may paw at the ground, urinate in crouching position, or in a total passive move, roll onto t...

Revival of the Pack
