Count DraculaâEUR(TM)s âEUR~children of the nightâEUR(TM) began to make their âEUR~musicâEUR(TM): a distant chorus of lupine howls, echoing through the Transylvanian night. This is a mind opening article by a biologist who studied wolf song for a Ph.D.

After hundreds of hours listening to thousands of wolves for my PhD, the difference between howls was obvious. The voice of a Russian wolf was nothing like that of a Canadian, and a jackal was so utterly different again that it was like listening to Farsi and French. I believed that there must be geographic and subspecies distinctions. Other researchers had made this proposition before, but no one had put together a large enough collection of howls to test it properly. A few years later, my degree finished, I told my Dracula story to the zoologist Arik Kershenbaum at the University of Cambridge.

This amazing article touches on ecology and cultural anthropology.....

My conclusion...we are ALL connected.

Please note, comment, and forward.

Wolves are wonderful animals, and so misunderstood by many.
