Post by wolfyattitude » Sat Jun 18, 2011 1:23 pm

Some people say wolf cubs, some say wolf pups. Can someone tell me the correct term please!

cubs are usually for bears,loins etc but i'm pretty sure you can also use it in wolves since they have called them cubs in a lot of places even n books so i think that pup and cub are both for wolves :wink:

Yes, but I want a direct answer, not to be rude. I would like to know the technical term for a baby wolf. And I'm pretty sure only one of them is for a wolf baby, not both.

Hello wolfyattitude,
I believe there is a topic where people debated on whether to use the term pup or cub. ^^
I do believe both terms are correct, though most people use the term pup.

Thank you for providing that, flower ^^

Since you can discuss this there (even though it's old, I see no issues in posting on it), I'll lock this, cheers!
