Developmentally what are dogs and what are wolves? This lecture, featuring Monty Sloan from Wolf Park, will provide an overview of comparisons spanning the development, from infancy through adulthood, of hand-reared wolves at Wolf Park and some comparisons with critical developmental stages of dogs.
Important experiences and discoveries in the ontological development of wolves made at Wolf Park over the past 45 years through the raising and socializing of wolves will be discussed along with details about studying the ethology of hand-raised wolves in a captive setting. From these observations, important comparisons can be made between the wolves at Wolf Park, wolves at other facilities, in the wild and with the behavioral development of dogs that can help address the following questions:
• What are the similarities and differences between wolf and dog development?
• What are the effects of environmental contexts vs genetic differences?
• Are dogs simply paedomorphic wolves?
• Are dogs even comparable to wolves?
A question and answer session will follow moderated by Dr. Monique Udell.
