Star wolves are alien creatures and cannot be expected to look exactly like terrestrial wolves. They have also developed their own features and traits to assist in star-based survival. For example:
Eyesight and Range
Alien star wolves evolved on planets around stars more modest in size than Earth’s star, “The Sun” – ones that emit a considerably smaller amount of dangerous ultraviolet light. Accordingly, star wolves developed the capacity to perceive an extensive range of colours, greatly surpassing the capacity of terrestrial life forms. Many star wolves can see both the ranges of red through to blue and the wavelengths much further up and down the scale. The ability to view worlds in a wider range of colours is useful to star wolves, as every world they visit has different qualities.
Star wolves’ function with a high level of intelligence – they have large brains which can present a wide variety of cognitive benefits. And they are of course, mobile, allowing them to collect energy faster – energy which is required to maintain a large brain. However, the greater energy requirements also correspond to higher food requirements. Accordingly, many females in all species classified as large-brained, rely on supplementary support to raise their young.
Good Dad – Large-Brained Offspring!
A detailed study by evolutionary biologist Sandra Heldstab and her colleagues Karin Isler, Judith Burkart and Carel van Schaik from the University of Zurich’s department of anthropology.
– (published in the journal “Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology”).
With the exception of humans, a father’s help with the rearing of their offspring as opposed to that of other, often youthful, individuals who still lack experience, has been shown to have the greatest influence on the development of large brains.
This is because “fathers help consistently and dependably with the rearing of offspring, whereas assistance from other group members, such as elder siblings for instance, is far less reliable”
– Dr Heldstab
Additionally, packs of wolves and “African wild dogs,” who both have large brains, often receive less support from the mature pack members, who when food is in short supply are more interested in looking out for their own needs. Neither are they above stealing prey the parents had returned from the hunt with to feed their young. The father is much more likely to put his young first in such circumstances.
Inconsistent support provision by the male for the female in terms of raising their young, results in the female producing a reduced number of large-brained youngsters. Instead, she will give birth to a larger litter with smaller brains. This occurs to ensure she doesn’t waste her energy on a large-brained litter which is destined to die, because there are no dependable helpers.
“A female cannot energetically afford offspring with large brains unless she can rely on help, and such dependable help only comes from the father.”
– Dr Heldstab
When raising the youngsters is a joint activity on the part of both parents this contributes to the provision of the prerequisites necessary for larger brains to develop – and the subsequent evolution of higher-level intelligence.
Telekinesis and Telepathy
In the case of star wolves, many alien-equivalent neurons are necessary for thinking, telepathing and utilising telekinesis. The appearance of telepathy and telekinesis amongst star wolves was probably closely linked to an enhanced level of intelligence.
A good brain is an indication of good genes. By nature, such star wolves are fearless and confident and of clear quality and dominant nature.

How fascinating & wonderful to see another of your amazingly creative posts! Wishing you Health & Happiness in The New Year!
A very happy and healthy new year to you too Cindy 😊
Yet another New Year to explore the big Wide World we know to exist ‘out there’.
How remarkable it is that you are able to present such a great diversity
of life Wolfie. Totally fascinating!
Nature provides all the diversity Eddie! Can’t take any credit at all there🙃
Nope. She sure does a nice job too Wolfie
More interesting facts, Icewolf, to expand the ever expanding expansion of star-wolves knowledge.
Always good to expand Tom🙂
Good for the mind… good for the soul… not always good for the body… but 2.5 out of 3 isn’t bad, by any means! 🙂
When mind and soul come together and are in balance the body usually naturally follows 🙂
Amazing and so awesome post dear friend💕🤗
Thank you Yaksh 😃💯You are very generous 😊
My pleasure dear friend💕🤗😊
