My friend Aedan wanted to learn about Wolves.

Did you know that wolves howl to send a messages to other wolves? They might howl to warn that there are other wolves in their territory. Howling skills are very important to a pack, because if a wolf is lost from the pack the other wolves can send him a signal to find his way back home. They also communicate by whimpering, whining, growling, barking, and yelping.

When a wolf wants to play, it dances around happily. Playing might look a lot like fighting, but you can tell playing and fighting apart because fighting has growling and yelping, but playing has jumping on  each other.

Wolves and dogs are closely related.
