World’s Laziest Wolf Won’t Bother to Get Up to Howl. Learn Why.
Wolves are built to withstand extremely cold temperatures, but unseasonably warm weather during the winter months can be a challenge.
Wolves (like dogs) will stay cool by panting to evaporate heat and moisture off their tongue. Panting is especially effective for wolves. A wolf’s elongated muzzle and the shape of the inner nose ensure optimal oxygenation and an efficient cooling system. Wolves also alter their patterns of activity, staying hunkered down during the hottest times of day.
But to really beat the heat, inertia is key, and no other wolf demonstrates how to do it better that the laziest wolf we’ve ever known – sweet sluggish Alawa.
