Yes, very. I think once I got Kazakhstan, I began to guess all of the Middle Eastern countries I never would have got.

Well the "once" does sort of implies it. Now if he had said "after" it would have been more ambiguous. He could have meant either though.

Dang I guessed Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan but not the others. I'm not any expert, but I would have thought that Norway, Sweden, or Finland would have been on the list. Good quiz.

It's hard to say how many wolves are in Finland because they come and go to Russia all the time.

Wow at norway.... I just read the article where they planned to kill 48 of the total amount of 67 wolves that live in norway... crazy, are those last 20 symbolic or something, jsut so they could say but we didnt killt hem all?. Even more crazy, a year before that 11.000 hunters had been granted a license to kill 16 wolves.. ( so could be thousands more unlicensed hunters) so about 700 hunters per wolf!!

Madness..

there are definitely more wolves than that in Norway, and the wolves are being hunted because they kill the sheep, and give farmers a hard time.

Are your type ins for the 4,000 answer harsher than other quizes or have I just managed to spell it horribly badly multiple times?

Normal type-ins are used. To get it correct, you need to type "Kyrg" or "Kirg" followed by any combination of letters, then ending in "stan".

Is it only about Grey Wolves? There are other types of wolves as well - coyotes, Ethiopian wolves, etc.

No, they really aren't. Just like a dog isn't. They're all canines and related but not the same.

Strictly speaking, "wolf" by itself refers to Canis Lupus, also known as the gray wolf. There are other members of Canis that have "wolf" in their names, like the Ethiopian wolf or the African golden wolf, but they're not quite the same thing.

Some surprises here. I thought for sure it would have included Romania, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, but it didn't. Very surprised about Turkey and Iran being on the list.

They've got lots of mountains where is quite cold and makes it a perfect enviroment and climate for wolves

So, Mowgli being raised by wolves in India isn't very accurate?

According to Wikipedia, India has a decreasing population of 1,000 wolves. And they're all legally protected. So I guess it could still be true.

The southern hemisphere is also not big on land. Only about 19% of the hemisphere is land, and nearly 30% of the land is Antarctica, and 18% Australia, both of which have no wolves.

Interesting that people mention denmark (over other candidates) since 10 years ago it had none (maybe that is why, here in the netherlands we didnt just to have any either, but last few years they are continuously in the news, because of some sightings, which is a big deal all of a sudden, so might make people think we are overrun with woves or something haha)

Interesting that Spain is on the list, but no other country between it and easternEurope/Russia. Do they have some unique subspecies there? Ok, just googled it. according to wiki - "The Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus) also known as Spanish wolf, is a proposed subspecies of grey wolf that inhabits the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula . . ."

Spain has a bit lower population density than other big countries, that might help.

Yes, there is a sub-species as you mentioned, and they're very different from the grey wolf more common in Europe. Much smaller.
