- Wolves may not talk like humans, but they communicate in very different ways. Some examples are vocalization which include barking, whimpering, growling, and howling, scent which include scats and pheromones and body language which includes physical features, body positions and movements. In the article ‘How Do Wolves Communicate?’ it stated that even some dogs use wolf communication!
- In two articles, ‘Wolf Communication’ and ‘How Do Wolves
- Communicate?’ it explained that wolves have 4 different ways of
- vocalization and in one of the articles which was ‘How Do Wolves
- Communicate?’ it stated that wolves can mainly be heard during
- the evening when the wind is calm. That is why they mostly vocalize
- during that time. Wolves sometimes growl or bark to show a
- warning against any sort of danger. They also growl during fights
- against other wolves. Wolves whimper to get their mothers to nurse them, to show a surrender over more dominate wolves or to show a surrender during fights. Wolves can howl for 3 different reasons. To warn wolves to stay in their packs and protect their young ones. To gather wolves and spend time together. And to be heard from a long distance. Wolves bark for the same reasons they growl.
- A wolf’s body language shows a lot about its emotions. In the article ‘Wolf
- Communication’ it stated wolves mainly use body language to convey the rules of the pack
- in order for it to stay organized. Wolves show anger by showing
- their teeth and sticking their ears up straight. If a wolf detects
- something suspicious, they’ll pull back their ears and squint to
- be alert of danger. If a wolf is scared or fearful it’ll have its ears
- against it’s head.
- Wolves have
- an excellent sense of smell.
- They often use this to mark
- territory. They do that by
- spraying urine on an area, so wolves from another pack
- know that the area is occupied. Pack members can also identify a pack mate by the smell of its urine.
- In the article ‘How Do Wolves Communicate?’ It went very inadept about Dominance.
- Any wolf can become dominant. The wolf needs to find an unoccupied territory and a mate. A dominant wolf may decide to move to move in their packs without a mate. As they move, the dominant wolf ends up killing an alpha wolf from another pack. Less dominant wolves have to display submissiveness by holding their tails down and lowering their bodies while pawing at the higher-ranking wolves
