I heard wolfs are very hard to identify because there are SO many, I think I read that somewhere haha. Look how chunky that thing is! Are you going to keep it? I found a few wolfs in the middle of my garage floor, I tried to touch it and it pounced at my finger!

hahaha, you're tellin me!!! {D maybe that one's it. lookin at pics, it could be. i'm sure some coloration varies with range, but that's common. i did not find it in south florida though, but it's range could've shifted NW a little also. thanks for the help Novak. let me know if you come up with anything different although that looks about right.

Haha, well you could assume it being that one for now, I'll continue looking tomorrow.

I'm sure if Padkison dropped by he would be able to tell us what it is.

No problem though. It looks gorgeous so I had to help. :)
