Do they wag their tails?

Postby Elina » Tue Sep 21, 2010 1:53 pm

So on Sunday I went to the Zoo with my other half and my daughter.
Now my daughter Audrey has wanted to be a vet for. . .forever and thus has a keen interest in animals and watches everything I watch on TV about animals and other then reading books about princesses she much prefers to read care guides and nature books.

When we were at the zoo the first enclosure was filled with 'Timber wolves'. These 'timber wolves' were much smaller then all the other timber wolves I have seen in my life but none the less they were very cute.

Audrey was looking at one and he/she (I did not look) walked up to her wagging its tail and she asked me something 'Wolves are not meant to wag their tails are they? They are not domesticated. .. Are they?'

So now I need to know for her if they do as I am not totally sure as I have read far more about foxes then wolves.

Wolves do wag their tails when they are in the presence of a pack leader, or sometimes just when they are together in a group and happy to see each other. I suppose since these wolves, no matter how "pure" their lines may be, are a little imprinted on humans, and will probably wag their tails in recognition of people as well.
