There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Do you think that this is a real image of a "giant" wolf?

I don't think this is giant wolf, Its photography trick, A bigger wolf, and men behind them are at some distance behind this hanged wolf. This is my guess only though, I may be wrong.

Hi @sanjay 

The first two wolves you used for the Eurasian Wolves aren`t Eurasian Wolves, They are North-American :-)

Wolves welcoming back an old friend, and we can even see displays of dominance from higher ranking members. Nice video.

Body size of the Indian wolf, in comparison with the dhole:

Check this new comparative image of sizes, between the Indian wolf and the other "large" canid from India, the dhole:

It is incredible how little information is about these two animals, in question of size, and this apply to all the other Indian animals, at exception of the tiger and the leopard. However, I managed to found real measurements (in the flesh, not from skins or random averages), in order to create this comparison.

For the dhole, I excluded the specimens from other areas, like Thailand or Russia, so I name it only "Indian dhole". A weigh of 30 lb for a male was excluded as it is described as "thin", which suggest a bad state.

For the wolf, the largest head-body length (109 cm) was estimated from the largest specimen recorded (147 cm TL) in base of other three specimens with known head-body length and total length. I choose to do it because they had a strong correlation between head-body and total length (r=0.96) so I decided to show how large was the largest male recorded. Pocock mentions another male, but he labels it as "young", so it was not included in the list.

By the way, in this occasion, I created a gray silhouette in order to show a comparison between the average specimens and the largest ones. I decided to make this changes in order the improve the presentation of the images and the data itself.

Hope you like it, suggestions are welcomed. If you have more data, that you could share about these particular animals, feel free to post it.

Greetings to all.

Great work, and hopefully sometime we'll have comparative tables to each of the species we talk about in Wildfact.
It's just that I'm getting quite addicted to this images Guate Grin
