The Bravelands series would probably be one of the series to use for teaching what wild canines and hyenas do different especially books #5 it has one of the species nicknamed sprit-eaters. So clearly Bravelands book #5 is one that could help with some of ways canines are wise including being honest near foes even though that can be hard, a golden wolf pack in book #5 is treated with more disrepsect than Maugrim's gray wolf pack in Narnia. Bravelands book #5 would sure be one of the fiction books to help show others hurting your foe can actually worsen a problem, Bravelands is a book series similar to both The Lion King and Wolves Of The Beyond when you compare the themes. The trickery in Bravelands book #5 is the golden wolf pack serving the pride of a mean lion who is similar to Scar in personality so like Maugrim they looked brutal but were actually being protective.
Hi I'd like to have your help in the science of how the Herpestidae Viverriedae and Mustildae are different they seem similar in both appearance and diets so what makes these three families differnt. It's the surely the civet facts that make me mention weasel and mongoose at the same time but I see meerkats relationship with the mongoose too
Even if just reading the what species the characters are the result might be better than explaining stuff with a fairy tale. Telling people how biological stuff isn't always quite the same as a legend, this sort of speech wouldn't be too hard to do with the Jungle Book. I'm a bit emotional about how people treat Tabaqui and sorry for the dhoes both ways history of losing habitat and their war scene in Rudyard's sequel of the Jungle Book, plus the negative scenes they're sadly given in video. But I think explaing what does with habit and what's part of the qualities of these two species might help the canine family epsecially if explaing how legendary stuff isn't the same as the scientific explanation of their behavior. But similar speech could be done for other animals in the Jungle Book. Mainly I think the Jungle Book would help conservation more than a picture book.
I completely agree on the importance of educating people about how fictional stories do not equal real-life biology. Many canids and other animals have had their reputations tarnished because of how they are depicted in fiction, and this can cause real-life harm to their welfare and their conservation. As a biologist (OK, college graduate with a biology degree), it annoys me when people make an untrue claim about a species because they heard/saw it in a fictional story, and I just wish that people would take the time to actually research wildlife biology, instead of blindly accepting what they heard/saw about wildlife in fiction as fact. Good luck on your project to educate people about the canids and the other animals from The Jungle Book!
Right I don't like how frequently even non-fiction doesn't say the proper order of the species like the Jackals and coyote which proves serious impatience, and then stuff like even ancient myths still confusing people about the proper solution of several species.
Thanks for wishing me luck on my business with the Jungle Book.
What do you mean by that? Ancient myths I can certainly see as a source of misinformation about canids, but not non-fiction works; I've read plenty of non-fiction books and papers about canids and they accurately describe their biology.
Currently fox, raccoon dog, jackal, or coyote too many people don't know about the order of omnivores and argue about every wild canine being carnivore, I even had a rude user on Lion Guard wiki get rough with me about this significant subject and use one of the rudest names while I was just saying not all canines are a carnivore, grrr this rude user roughly called me snake hater. He didn't know Omnivora existed.................. But he was fussy enough to later guess my phobia but he guessed wrong, hyenas seriously spook me more than a quiet reptile.
This rough fuss gave me the clue people not knowing the order Omnivora exists is why so many on Youtube say carnivore when they should be saying Omnviore. But there's also many ancient myths and folktales that only mention even the species that are accurately omnivore only eating meat, and then lots of folklore of canines have misunderrstood story scenes which is one of the things that increase people's fear of wild canines The other issue is while working at the library volunteering doing lots of shelfing, I've discovered even some non-fiction of books say carnivore even if it's one fo the omnivorous species. Plus how many of the wikipedias say Carnivora on the wikipedias of the omnivorus species, I read the google stuff.
I like the people like you to know where the worst stuff seems to hide unknownly, I really feel like I can't live without Canidae.
Sorry to hear that someone was being mean to you like that.
Based on what you wrote, I think that you are confusing biological taxonomy with dietary categories; let me try to explain this the best I can. The word "carnivore" has two meanings; they are as follows:
1) A member of the biological order Carnivora.
2) An animal that only eats meat.
The two definitions do not always correspond with each other. For example, the Giant Panda is a carnivore (definition 1) because it belongs to the biological order Carnivora, but it is also not a carnivore (definition 2) since it only eats bamboo plants. As another example, a snake is not a carnivore (definition 1) because it does not belong in the biological order Carnivora (it belongs to the biological order Squamata), but it is a carnivore (definition 2) since it only eats meat.
As you know, all canids belong to the biological family Canidae. The entire Canidae family is a part of the biological order Carnivora, so all canids are carnivores (definition 1). It should be noted that unlike carnivore, onmivore is only a dietary category; there is no single biological taxonomic group for omnivores and thus the order Omnivora does not exist. But as you rightfully pointed out, not all canids eat a meat-only diet, so from a dietary perspective, they are omnivores rather than carnivores (definition 2). So ultimately, those canids are both carnivores (definition 1) and omnivores.
It's confusing, I know. Members of the biological order Carnivora are also called "carnivorans" and honestly I think that this term should be used for them, thus reserving the word "carnivore" for the dietary category of animals that only eat meat. But right now "carnivore" is used to describe both, so whenever you read something about canids (or any other animal) and they are referred to as carnivores, then you need to read for context to determine which definition of the word is being used. I hope that this made a little sense.
I couldn't live without the family Canidae either; cause they are just the best animals.
Hello RainForestWolf I'm big on the conservation stuff staying clear and fictional scenes not confusing people worse than fairy tales did in the past. So I'm totally willing to share my insight with the nice people like you for sure. You can check it yourself on Facebook you'd be welcome on one of the special facebook pages inspired by me but formed by one who posts conservation pictures it's the recent page titled Kids Love Wolves you're absolutely welcome to join this page RainforestWolf the stuff under Henrietta Abeyta is actually stuff done by me but I don't yet have my own page because Grandma struggles on figuring out how you form the new account. Eileen she'd be quite pleased to see someone like you join indeed.
But mainly I came to say if there's a way to wisely share lessons with the outer world I'd be fine to share the stuff I learned from Reirei's scenes. With the support I give wild canines she's even on a page of her coyote cousins. Her scenes of hard experiences with the two lions Scar and Simba taught me eighteen things, and I wouldn't mind if these lessons were shared with kids in conservation stuff or with both. Photos, songs, conservation speech telling people the differences of personality due to a TV show and the real behavior, her cousins like the coyote appreciating the animated cousins like her because she's similar enough to explain their own real issues, videos to teach some communication, and stuff like how really different canines are from the hyenas Reirei's Lion Guard stuff could actually help the Canidae several ways. I helped Eileen post on Kids Love Wolves I'd be willing to help you too, especially if its something like needing extra speech. Insight, and knowing some science facts by heart, plus understanding ecosystem stuff I don't become speechless even on screen. I even understand how I match several canine species in judgements of totem, I get this spirit animals stuff does with you having some of the same qualities or at least gaining them.
But before sharing I'd like to hear your opinion. It's the wolf who inspired my attitude of finding ways to be cautious, and it's the wolf who helped me ignore mockery during school by understanding what they've really experienced and that helping me gain courage, but I understand its cousins nearly as clearly. It's since I was four years old I've understood Akela and Mufasa equally in their caution.
Hello RainforestWolf we're both female but from your profile we also have stuff in common. Our Wishes are similar for sure. Is it possible you could help the Lion Guard Series stuff?? As we clearly agree about the life of wild canines I'm especially wishing to support the future of wild canines thought to be added to the Pride Lands in the Lion Guard TV series. Reirei's the one I already feel sorry for.
She's the character who really needs help with scientific facts becoming as clear as possible anywhere, poor female black-backed jackal is hated more than most of the other villains and has a lower rate but if you love the canines like the two of us it's clear that's because Reirei's a misunderstood character. I even want this poor black-backed jackal reformed. Poor girl they've made her look carnvivorous but she's one of the omnivorous species. That's why I feel sorry for Reirei and her pack their scenes aren't yet completely truthful. And then serious issues like hundreds of fans don't get Janja's touches aren't love but his scenes of teasing Reirei, so it's also like she's the villain laughed at the most but she's the Lion Guard character who fits the list the least even when explaining what her actions mean. She's mainly had Simba show her pack hatred and then during season 2 she's had to hide her disagreement from Scar. But it's clear most Lion Guard fans don't get her calmless is loyalty and prudence plus effiency most people think of Rerei's calm scenes as her glad to help Scar. But I know it's actually poor Reirei protecting her pack. Every other animal in Scar's army could kill the poor brave female. So far she's been an Outlander.
Plus I've written several blogs on this wiki as well as Lion Guard Wiki to try to help the canines species in Africa, and there are several other species they've thought of adding in Season 3. I can hardly control my enthusiasm of the scenes of the other species. African Wild Dog, Golden Jackal but on Lion Guard Wiki they've called it Golden Wolf instead, Ethiopian Wolf, Bat-eared Fox that's the species Bhati is, she has Concept photos on this wiki plus lots of fan art. You're welcome to read any of my blogs especially those to help the wild canines.
Like you RainforestWolf I hope to keep the wild canines safe. I'm a person with compassion for wild canines, I've known the wolf well since chilhood but I love the whole family of canines. Misunderstood speech, misunderstood qualities, plus misunderstood reactions that's the type of stuff that formed my compassion for wild canines so early, people fear my disabilties. If you read pages of The Lion King Fanon Wiki there are pages in category under my user name that could explain my ideas for Pride Lands scenes too. The pages I wrote include some crossover tales too, like me putting Princess Merida in tales of the Pride Lands.
The other recent thing I don't like is they chose to show Tabaqui as a hyena not his original golden jackal form in the Jungle Book sequel coming soon as live-action movie.
Any canine subjects shown on this wiki written by you RainforestWolf I'm one of your supporters, I'm loyal to the canine family, Yellowstone is my dream vacation.
Hi MysticCanines'Heroine732, it's awesome to meet another canid fan on this site!
I would love to help, but I don't know how much assistance I would be, because while I saw a few scenes of The Lion Guard, I have not watched the show in its entirety. From what you say, it seems like Reirei and the other Black-backed Jackals (Lupulella mesomelas) have a bad reputation and are in need of some positive representation. Hopefully there will be good Black-backed Jackal characters in the future, similar to how Jasari and her clan provided a positive depiction of the otherwise much-maligned Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta).
Thank you so much for advocating for the protection of wild canids!
Wait, Disney is making a live-action Jungle Book sequel? Cool! But yeah, I agree that it is a shame that they chose to make Tabaqui a hyena rather than a Golden Jackal, since he is the latter in the original books; I just hope that he is depicted as a Striped Hyena (Hyaena hyaena), since this is the only hyena species that is native to India. On that note, I wonder if the Dholes (Cuon alpinus) will be in the Jungle Book 2? I actually hope not, cause the last thing that this little-known endangered canid needs is negative representation in a popular Disney movie.
Thank you for your support! And I apologize for the late response - I have been quite busy, and when I attempted to respond last month my comment was somehow deleted once I tried to post it.
The rate of the black-back jackals in the Lion Guard episodes. It seems like we who really love the canines in real life are the only few who can understand when they show their qualities quietly. I can tell Reirei is very likely to be repressing reluctance while cooperating with Scar. But the majority give Reirei reputation worse than Janja's. She's a character argued about on YouTube for sure behavior confusion, plus the frequent confusion of which species and their true order. Besides how repeadly I've written positive comments under a few usernames because of forgetting my passwords others picture the mother jackal like she doesn't tell her pups the truth, but I know it's her motherhood work misunderstood. I'd say she's like Tabaqui repressing reluctance when he's near the tiger but she's like Baloo when she's singing songs without the spotted hyenas, Reirei's probably mainly being patient about freedom.
While I have listened to a few of the songs I have not watched any episodes of The Lion Guard, so I can't say much about Reirei's character. That said, I don't deny that she is just doing what she thinks is best for her pups, like any real-life mother canid would do. I don't understand how people can recognize the loving nature of Domestic Dogs (Canis familiaris) and yet veiw other canids as cruel and heartless; it's like they fail to acknowledge that our beloved canine companions got their admirable traits from their wild relatives.
Poor brave alpha ranked jackal she was kicked enough that it looked like ou ou ou ou this won't help please halt your fight Pride Lander, I'm starting to ache and my pack probably is too, so please stop throwing and kicking us. This is how seaon 2's violence looked.
