About My Favorite Animals
"The wolf (Canis lupus),[a] also known as the grey/gray wolf or timber wolf, is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb) and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb).  It is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle.  Its winter fur is long and bushy and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, and brown to black also occur.  Mammal Species of the World (3rd ed., 2005), a standard reference work in zoology, recognises 38 subspecies of C. lupus.. The gray wolf is the second most specialised member of the genus Canis, after the Ethiopian wolf, as demonstrated by its morphological adaptations to hunting large prey, its more gregarious nature, and its highly advanced expressive behavior.  It is nonetheless closely related enough to smaller Canis species, such as the coyote, and golden jackal, to produce fertile hybrids. It is the only species of Canis to have a range encompassing both the Old and New Worlds, and originated in Eurasia during the Pleistocene, colonizing North America on at least three separate occasions during the Rancholabrean. It is a social animal, travelling in nuclear families consisting of a mated pair, accompanied by the pair's adult offspring.  The gray wolf is typically an apex predator throughout its range, with only humans and tigers posing a serious threat to it. It feeds primarily on large ungulates, though it also eats smaller animals, livestock, carrion, and garbage.  A seven year-old wolf is considered to be relatively old, and the maximum lifespan is about 16 years. The global gray wolf population is estimated to be 300,000.  The gray wolf is one of the world's best-known and most-researched animals, with probably more books written about it than any other wildlife species.  It has a long history of association with humans, having been despised and hunted in most pastoral communities because of its attacks on livestock, while conversely being respected in some agrarian and hunter-gatherer societies.  Although the fear of wolves is pervasive in many human societies, the majority of recorded attacks on people have been attributed to animals suffering from rabies. Non-rabid wolves have attacked and killed people, mainly children, but this is rare, as wolves are relatively few, live away from people, and have developed a fear of humans from hunters and shepherds."
"A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the even-toed ungulate family Suidae. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa), along with other species. Related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog. Pigs, like all suids, are native to the Eurasian and African continents. Juvenile pigs are known as piglets. Pigs are highly social and intelligent animals. With around 1 billion individuals alive at any time, the domestic pig is among the most populous large mammals in the world.  Pigs are omnivores and can consume a wide range of food.  Biologically, pigs are very similar to humans, thus are frequently used for human medical research"
"Three of the four members of Cheatahs hailed from different countries: vocalist Nathan Hewitt from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; bassist Dean Reid from San Diego, California; and drummer Marc Raue from Dresden, Germany. Hewitt and Wignall first met in 2006, recruiting friends Reid and Raue a few years later. Their first release, the "Warrior" single, was issued in 2009, followed by the Coare and Sans EPs. The latter two were compiled as Extended Plays in 2013. The band released their eponymous debut full-length album on Wichita Recordings in early 2014, supported by tours of the United States and Europe. Their fourth EP, Sunne, was released on 23 February 2015. On 31 March 2015 they announced its follow-up, ? (Murasaki), inspired by Japanese novelist Murasaki Shikibu, and in particular, her novel The Tale of Genji. On 18 August 2015, Cheatahs previewed new song "Seven Sisters" and announced that their second full-length album, Mythologies, would be released on 30 October by Wichita"
