Ahk is not a Wolf

Journal Entry: Tue May 19, 2015, 3:57 AM


Please tell me how he looks like a wolf. I even tell you in the deviation he isn't!


I know you can think whatever you want but stop calling him a wolf. PLEASE.

Oh and lets not forget a bunch of those people that have a Shepherd or Husky mix and automatically labels it a Wolf.
They don't even bother with attempting to pull off "wolf mix" or "cross" or "hybrid". Nononono, its just Wolf. lol.

I think everyone who thinks something is canid in appearance with a long muzzle and pointy ears automatically assumes 'Wolf'.
An example would be one of the Thylacines many names: "Tasmanian Wolf" and it's a friggin marsupial for pete's sake. -facepalm-

An Aardwolf is a Hyena, not even a canid.

A Maned Wolf is not a Wolf although it is a canid.

A Brush Wolf is a Coyote. Some hicks still insist Wolves and Coyotes are the same thing.

And then there's weirdo guys at bars that are called Wolves. lol

In other news we discovered that the long known Egyptian Jackal isn't a Jackal actually but a Wolf. :D lmao.

We need a 101 book, "How To Identify A Dog" that might clear up some misunderstandings. . . oh and it would have to be a picture book, because you know some don't like to read >.>

Ahk's anatomy is a wee bit similar to the Maned wolf (long limbs).
But I'm sure glad I have so many foxes around the beaches where I live; seeing them made me recognize their shapes and builds versus other animals.

He looks nothing like a wolf! Why? Well because:
-his neck man 
-body isn't stocky enough to be a wolf bod 
-legs are longer than a wolfs (maned wolves have long legs but that's about it with the similarities... XD)
-and the ears.... 

Uh yea, but I totally agree with the point you made, this website is FULL of wolves and wolf hybrids and when ever people see a canine, they reckon it's a wolf. And when they see something that looks nothing like a wolf they automatically think it's a hybrid-demon thingo (idk idk) 

I'm one of those wolf people on here, I ain't gonna lie XD but I can tell the difference between a wolf and some other species... Some what any way XD

Lol. That's what bothers me. I be like, read the damn words I put them there cause reasons. XD

I think that because wolves are so popular here when people see a canine that's larger with longer legs and they're not sure what it is they go with wolf because probability wise, it very well could be. With everyone's style and sense of anatomy being different sometimes it's a little hard to tell. 

Had I not actually read his ref I would think he was not a wolf but could have been based off one at some point. Though really he strikes me as a maned wolf over anything else with those long legs. I know he's his own thing though and what canine he's based off of doesn't really matter, he's cool and he's his own thing. =)

I agree with Tatch - anything even slightly canine-esque is a wolf to people on here. It pisses me off so much when people call my Lunar s (Antaos, Ahrien, etc) wolves. e___e

I've always thought he looked 'Maned Wolf' like.
Those tall legs and slender face.

Of course Maned Wolves also look like really tall foxes. Lmao.

Thats a very interesting wolf character!!

nah, really, people use "wolf" to describe any relatively large canine looking animal despite them having a skull face, long slender flexible tail, extremely tall, and thick mane. lmao.

Every canine is a 'wolf' lol 

I have people throwing my bobcat OC in 'wolf' folders lol and it's not on accident either lol Anything that looks like a wolf, is a wolf. No research into actual wolf anatomy needed.

Everything with four legs, a long snout, forward facing eyes, and teeth is a wolf/dog according to DA.

Even if the creature being accused would never be classified as such in the real world.


Same thing with my Feonixes, they're automatically dogs bc they have long snouts (they must be dogs if they have long snouts, that's law), therefore should conform to dog anatomy.  I had to express myself with this to someone recently, and it bugs the hell outta me.  I feel like some people might see it as me being stubborn or using the 'it's my style' excuse and not wanting to learn anatomy, but the opposite is true.  Not everything uses strictly canine anatomy. It's like I have to give them a fish-like head so they'd not be called canines.  /rant

Go look at some real wolves, people.

if anything I see Ahk resembles more of a Maned Wolf, which is basically a fox with really long legs

Deviantart kids love wolves but have no idea what they are so basically any canine you draw just looks like a wolf to them, lmao.
(Also a lot of them draw deer that look like canines, why??...)
