I thought that was interesting stuff above, about the dogs too.

re: "some wolves filled a niche by becoming scavengers." -FF
re: "In the wild there is an advantage for animals to look much the same as each other. Any that stand out are likely to be predated quickly. Likewise for animals that are less afraid." -TTNZ

I was struck by a thought after reading the two ideas above. Both of Terry's points, would lead those animals to be shunned, or driven out, by the pack; and, if not predated, could likely become FF's "some wolves [that] filled a niche by becoming scavengers."
