Re: Black wolves phasing

Hello, I've seen black wolves who seem to "phase out" into gray at vastly different times. For example, Romeo was an 8 year old wolf who still retained much of his black coat, whereas Cinderella almost looked white despite being originally dark colored. So my question is whether or not the time at ...

Re: Red Wolves

Okay. I admit. Half of my original interest was because I liked the color red. You could probably tell just by looking at some of my older wolves in 2.7, that I liked red. Let's just say I abused the coloring sliders quite a bit. Ignoring that, red wolves are actually fascinating! They are EXTREMEL...

Re: Resources for additional reading about wolves

Might I also suggest my current reading: A Wolf Called Romeo, by Nick Jans. It is an account of the years a wild black wolf had innumerable friendly interactions with the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska. In between events is a heaping of knowledge and research that is rather interesting. In it is...

Re: what would be a reason for a wolf to abandon its mate and pups?

Answered this on the Wolf Q&A channel in the official WolfQuest Discord; there are some other answers of mine in older threads here, but this is the most cohesive answer to your question. *** Abandonment [of pups] is possible but depends on the context. In a scenario where abandonment is on the tabl...

Re: Why do some wolves disperse but others don't?

(Originally answered on the Wolf Q&A Discord) While some wolves disperse from their natal pack and do not return, others may come and go, even after establishing their own territory. Wolves can disperse at any time; this may be motivated by breeding opportunities or food. Also, think of the possibi...

Re: 2021 Forum Renovations

All good suggestions that I agree with. Although, I’m not sure if you’re on our Discord specifically, but the reason why we don’t have an expansion of things allowed for Wolf Art/Writings is that the Discord #media-sharing channel is pretty active in sharing non-wolf art/writings as it is. In that s...

Re: Wolves eating blueberries

I was talking about Yellowstone wolf scat, specifically. I also meant formatting this post in a way where it is no longer a suggestion but information, so it would still apply to general wolf discussion Is there a way to close this post?

Re: How do wolves respond to pack mate injury during hunting?

So sorry for the delay; I receive and answer more questions on the Discord channel now. The quotes I have provided below are from a study about risk; this is the closest study I could find that answers your question. How wolves respond to a pack mate injury during (or after) a hunt may depend on a n...

Re: Wolves eating blueberries

Yeah, I didn't expect this idea to gain much traction. I probably should've posted it in general wolf discussion. No need to have posted this in General Wolf Discussion as the topic discussion still pertains to the plausibility of adding a specific game feature. General Wolf Discussion is strictly ...

Re: Should WolfQuest add the ability to hunt fish?

* If wolves in Minnesota live in a similar region and climate as wolves in Wyoming , and are not pressured into hunting fish (unlike the wolves in British Columbia), this may mean that adding fish in WQ isn't too far-fetched. They're different. While it's possible that a yellowstone wolf might go a...

Re: Why are the forums so inactive?

As of today the forums have been slightly re-organized and we on the forum side worked to make the active forums more compact. These were the changes: - Archived WolfQuest FAQ - Renamed News and Announcements/Developer's Blog (shortened the names) - Created "Your Pack" as an alternative to the #wolf...

This is a new forum to share information about your wolves and their character bios, pack family trees, gameplay logs, etc. We hope this can be a more in-depth alternative to the #wolf-characters Discord channel.

Re: Smaller screens can adversely alter forum's appearance

Good to hear - I'm merging your posts for now since I don't think we've changed our double-post/bumping rule yet. (I usually just delete, add new information and repost to "bump" the topic, if that helps.)

Topic locked.

Re: "It’s official: Voters decide to reintroduce wolves in Colorado"

[edit] I mean, it took years to bring wolves back to Yellowstone. There were plenty of legal battles and this seems like a similar incident. People either love or hate wolves. They're called "charismatic megafauna" for a reason. ... I agree that wolf conservation should not be voted on by the gener...
