A lot of different animal species play in the wild, especially younger animals. You could also probably get a tiger cub to chase a laser pointer.

*_Now I wish I had a PhD so I could work up a Grant proposal for a 5-decade study of "Canine juvenile play behavior as interspecies social comprehension and behavioral integration and cognitive development incentivization._* I could study it just to animate it. Many folks are surprised to learn that in the 20,000 + years that humans have been selectively breeding critters and plants to optimize them for characteristics WE find desirable, we have not created any new species. All the characteristics we've been selecting for were ALREADY present in the genetic heritage of wolves, and our selectivity among litter mates was not CREATING new features. Doesn't mean nothing new EVER happens... You can interbreed Wolves and just about any doggie breed and get an offspring that can continue breeding with other dogs & wolves. The Chromosomes still match up. That's been for a very long time a fundamental working definition of species. If they can interbreed and produce offspring that can continue to interbreed, critters are still part of one species, and have not diverged to separate species, despite distinctive appearances. There have been plenty of experiments interbreeding between species, which have produced live hybrids that can grow to adulthood, but they are sterile Mules - can't reproduce, because of chromosomal chaos. A lot of people haven't had time to read up on genetics or the microscale logistics of meiosis and embryology.

I can confirm that wolves make difficult pets. I had a half wolf, half lab that was one year old, and boy was she a handful. She was constantly testing me and pushing the boundaries I set out, I assume to see if I was still fit to be pack leader. She was startlingly intelligent, and on several occasions she obeyed voice commands she'd never heard before, and she was possibly the best guard animal I have ever seen, but she required constant discipline and correction. On the whole, I found the experience of owning her to be good, but I would caution anyone that wants a wolf puppy to be willing to speak their language and not just rely on scolding or other "humane" correctional measures. Wolves establish dominance by nipping ears and holding the other wolf's mouth shut with their own. If you're not willing to pinch your wolf pup's ear, or even bite it in extreme cases, you will not have the respect of your wolf. I know some may find the administration of pain to be cruel, but I assure you that a wolf or wolf hybrid will not respect a stern scolding, and will be potentially quite dangerous if not kept in line by methods they understand. I would love to have another wolf hybrid in the future, but I would want to get it very young if I do.

Okay, please tell me where the abject stupidity of this "science" began. You have a species that has evolved socially for as long as we can see. Then you see if it has social traits??? Also, note: Huskies don't like to fetch so much as play chase games. Fetching is dumb and boring and fit for Labrador Retrievers.

Haven't wild wolves hybridized with domesticated dogs over time seems that it would be difficult to determine natural inclination of behavior when the association between humans and wolves is so long at this point. Wolves might have domesticated traits folding back into wild populations over the centuries.

Unless we assume that things learned or trained inherit onto offspring, every traits dogs have at birth were selected and not taught. Dogs dont play fetch because they hear you cue. They just love chasing something that goes fast. They bring it back so the game continues. I think is a cub play version of adult hunt behaviours to feed the cubs.

If I’m not mistaken, when your brain is sleep deprived then you can have amyloid build up at the synapses, which is the same thing that happens to Alzheimer’s patients. But when you get sleep then your brain is sort of washed with cerebrospinal fluid and that can clear your synapses of the amyloid

This is interesting. My cat fetches, but he started doing it himself, without any training. We threw a toy one time and he brought it back unexpectedly. And kept doing it over and over. No food rewards required. This isn't the same to how these wolves started fetching (these wolves were given cues, and our cat already played in other ways), but it's still interesting to see.

I often listen to SciShow when I'm falling asleep. One night I had a dream where somebody said the word "pelagic", and it bugged me when I woke up. What the heck. So I looked it up when I got up the next morning. I backtracked the SciShow episodes that played while I was sleeping, and sure enough, one episode talked about pelagic fish. Pelagic means "of the open ocean". As in, not deep sea, not shoreline, not coral reef, but out in the wild blue. 🌠
