I adore this classic dire wolf from the old @yalepeabody halls (especially because we now know dire wolves weren’t wolves at all!). https://t.co/z2ic7jk7Ff

Dire Wolves existed in the Pleistocene Era of America's past. However, recent gene sequencing published by the Nature Journal reveals they have no direct relation to the modern Grey Wolf found in America. https://t.co/c2UYqXMdtq

Dire wolves last shared a common ancestor with living wolf-like species approximately 5.7 million years ago, according to a Nature paper. The findings also suggest that this extinct species originated in the Americas. https://t.co/LUeHjmbhpl https://t.co/iWRoeIgS0o

250,000 to 13,000 years ago, Dire wolves were about 20% bigger than today’s gray wolves—and, like other wolves, they probably traveled in packs, hunting down bison, ancient horses, and perhaps even small mammoths and mastodons.  https://t.co/3ydmlayQXG



@bertkreischer @GratefulDead Looks like rain or Dire Wolf!!!! 💀🌹



@EricBoehlert I’m not a deadhead but most (popular) dead songs fit the bill: dire wolf, truckin, ripple. And, for some reason, also smells like teen spirit.

@Fuser10314370 primi minuti in un campionato difficilissimo. Ancora devi imparare a dire "ciao". Entri dalla panchina. Stai sotto due a zero. Ed entri così. Speriamo che il buongiorno si veda dal mattino perché se è così...



@abrashTX I asked the authors of the new paper and they said dire wolf was fine since maned wolves aren’t wolves, either!
