Ritual of the Wolves by rieke-b Ritual of the Wolves by rieke-b
Wolves have always fascinated me. And they're returning to Germany, yay!

There's not much proof of why they really howl, yet, but it's about communication, that's for sure because they almost never howl alone but always with the pack.

Isn't it a sort of "marking their territory" thing? So that the animals hear them around? Especially to warn other predators in the area?

Anyway, I love wolves and I like your drawing. :)

Yes, that's surely one of the functions of the howling. It must be a social activity for sure. :)

Thanks a lot!
