Re: Update on Dire wolf taxonomy

Long time no read, La Striata. Thanks for sharing. My interest in this comes from the molecular side, as I work with environmental DNA (eDNA) routinely. Some of its challenges are shared with those of ancient DNA. Although I have never encountered an inhibitor as challenging as tar! I was intereste...

Re: Why is KK lethal for wolves?

Yeah. The K locus has the DNA/genetic code for creating the Beta-defensin 103 protein. This defensin protein has a "side role" in influencing pigmentation because it binds to another protein--a melanocortin receptor--that is found in melanocyte cells. Melanocytes are special cells in mammalian skin...

Re: Why is KK lethal for wolves?

How come the KK gene in wolves produces sick pups or is even lethal? Hey GoldenBeauty, In real-life grey wolves, the KK genotype does not automatically produce sick pups or cause lethality in utero (in the womb). At least, I still cannot find direct evidence or statements for either of those things...

Re: Pokémon

That sounds equally frustrating! I was bored one evening and found a YouTube series by False Swipe Gaming about "How good was [insert Pokemon here] ACTUALLY?". Covered popular pokemon and how their stats/moves/sprites changed over the games, with respect to competitive play. Poor Typhlosion, taking...

Re: Pokémon

A couple nights ago, I decided to do a new MD campaign (Red Rescue Team). But my DS Lite shut off twice spontaneously. I think either the game cartridge itself was coming loose in the bottom slot, or my hand was jiggling the power switch. Either way, I gave up!

Re: Name the Lost River Packs! (and updates)

It would take some research/digging from the incomplete forum archives, but finding out the names of the most popular forum-based packs in Pack Central could be a fun callback for some game players. This is a really good idea! It fits with the theme of having team references throughout Lost River. ...

Arabian wolf pursues an Ibex, cliff side!

This GIF/mp4 clip shows the impressive athleticism of an Arabian wolf as it pursues its equally impressive ungulate prey, possibly a Nubian Ibex, across a sheet cliff face! I personally did not know wolves were capable of hunting successfully on such steep cliff faces, similar to how snow leopards ...

How animation studios approach gendered animals in one picture

Too funny! I was instantly reminded of Alpha and Omega, and Balto. What movies can you think of that did this, with wolves or another animal? Can you think of any films where the animals' appearances were not dramatically modified to match their gender? https://preview.redd.it/wkvar0s6gyt41.jpg?wid...

Re: Why is this Wolf's tail curly?

Hard to say, although the other wolves in the pack are probably related to that individual, and would have a similar degree of hybridization, if any. I was able to find images of other wolves that display a slight curl at the ends of their tails, similar to some of the tails in the Lamar pack image...

Re: Why is this Wolf's tail curly?

I'm no expert on wolves or wolfdogs, but I agree that wolf has an exceptionally curled tail, even for the carriage height at that moment! That photo apparently originates from Wolves of the Rockies, a nonprofit advocacy group. I didn't find it on their main website, but I did find it on their faceb...

Hey Timber,
I agree it could be your disk space. To check that: the next time you begin the process of quitting the game, open up the Task Manager from the Control Panel menu with (Ctrl + Alt + Del). Let us know what you see in the Task Manager!

Re: How much dog do black wolves have?

Hey GoldenBeauty, All grey wolves and dogs are very, very similar genetically, because they did and still do hybridize frequently across evolutionary time: In general, the domestic dog is an extremely close relative of the gray wolf, from which it differs by only ∼0.04% in nuclear coding-DNA sequen...

Were suggestions from this thread implemented into the game? Unfortunately I can't verify for myself.
