The Top 10 Things to Do on Vacation: New Zealand
2. Hike to the 8th Wonder of the World. (Milford Track Guided Walk)
 Milford Sound is so special it really is worth mentioning twice. New Zealand is a hiker’s mecca with an extensive network of well-maintained trails and wilderness huts in epic-movie-worthy scenery with nothing out here that can really harm you (ie. no snakes, bears, mountain lions, scorpions, disease carrying insects, etc). If you don’t want to leave anything to chance, you can’t go wrong with a fully-guided trek on the famed Milford Track Guided Walk. Or walk all nine of the legendary multi-day great walks in New Zealand and decide for yourself which one is the best.

How Wolves Communicate. Part 3: Sight and Touch by wolf advocate and author Rick Lamplugh

Communicating visually is probably as important to wolves as communicating with sounds and scents, but it can be much harder to master. Wolves use their face, posture, hair, and tail to communicate, and often use multiple cues at the same time, according to Fred Harrington and Cheryl Asa in Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation. A dominant wolf ready to attack, for instance, will bare its teeth, have its hackles raised and legs stiff, and move slowly and deliberately. A submissive wolf, on the other hand, will hide its teeth, carry its body low, keep its fur sleek, and lower its ears and tail. 

The tail is the wolf’s most dynamic visual aid, according to one researcher. A raised tail makes a wolf look bigger. A wagging tail conveys friendliness. A stiff tail moving slowly may signal an attack. That researcher illustrated eleven tail positions that convey a variety of moods including assertion, intimidation, threat, submission, uncertainty, and depression. 

To survive in a pack, a young wolf must learn to read a countless combination of visual signals. Knowing the signals to read or send reduces conflict with family members. Harrington and Asa give two examples:

A wolf intrudes on the personal space of another wolf. The intruder realizes his mistake when the other wolf bares its teeth and growls.

During mating season when males are vying for honors, the visual cues between two opposing males may look like a dance accompanied by growls and whines, snarls and yelps.

Wolves must be able to see visual cues at any time. To that end, they have what Harrington and Asa call “24-hour” eyes, adapted to seeing during day and night. Though wolves lose color vision and some acuity at night, they can still see the features of nearby family members, a plus when the pack is trying to bring down a meal. Though wolves may have better vision than dogs, they are not as good as seeing at night as cats.

Tactile communication

Tactile communication in wolves has not been studied much, say Harrington and Asa. But touch is important to wolves from birth. Deaf and blind newborn pups nurse by using their senses of touch and smell. As they grow, wolves learn friendly and aggressive touches. While walking, for example, contented family members make brief muzzle-to-muzzle or muzzle-to-fur contact. When aggressive, a wolf may push against another’s flank or pin an opponents muzzle to the ground. 

Touch can reduce stress and strengthen bonds. Harrington and Asa mention studies of humans and their pet dogs which “…have shown that tactile contact reduces heart rate and blood pressure in both humans and dogs.” They speculate the same may happen between wolves.

Touch is also helpful in assessing a rival’s strength or skill. Young wolves may play fight as a way of assessing family members. An older wolf, on the other hand, may avoid allowing other wolves to physically engage him and uncover his possibly fading strength.

Show note from Jack:  I rarely get this excited about a show!  We have the best of the best guests on our podcast and they all bring something special to the show.  And +Lynn Terry is certainly no exception.  

I want you to listen carefully to this show, because in the short hour we had together (even got disconnected for a minute) Lynn brings some of the most amazing reminders and tips about building an audience and living the laptop lifestyle in 2015!  You have to listen to what she means about “monetizing your life.”  

The way she lays it out is elegant and powerful.  It can literally change things for you today, right now, in how you look at your business and where you are going with it.
