Wolves are a lot like dogs; they bark, growl,
whine, and squeak. When a wolf howls it doesn’t mean that it’s
looking up at the moon or that the moon is full. When they howl their nose
is always pointing up. They howl to call the pack together before or after
a hunt, during a snow storm, or on unfamiliar territory, warning to stay off
hunting grounds, or just for the pleasure of it. Wolves howl more in the winter
time than any other time of the year.
Wolves bark to warn other wolves about something dangerous.
A growl is often used when two or more pups are playing. Adults use growling
when they are being challenged by another wolf. Whining and squeaking go together
in some things, like when they are playing , feeding, or just having good
feelings. Mothers squeak when their pups are playing too rough. Fathers squeak
to call their pups.
Wolves have a very interesting way of communicating with other wolves and
telling them what is going on out through their territory.
