Wolves can't talk, but they can say a lot to one another - and to you, too, if you know how to 'read' a wolf's tail. By observing wolf behavior, researchers discovered what different tail positions mean. Here are some of them:
Possible threat: Careful!
Defensive restraint: I'm wary of you.
Self-confidence: I feel good.
Certain threat: I'm ready for you!
Imposing attitude (sweeping side to side): Show me respect.
Intimidation with restraint: You're the boss!
