Did you know that wolves across the world speak in 21 different dialects, with differences depending both on species and location?
The largest-ever study of howling in the ‘canid’ family of species – which includes wolves, jackals, and domestic dogs – has shown that the various species and subspecies have distinguishing repertoires of howling, or “vocal fingerprints”.
The characteristic howls of red wolves usually include a series of barks, yips, and sometimes growling, especially when voiced in alarm. The red wolf’s howl sounds somewhat similar to a coyote’s, but is often lower pitched and lasts longer.
