15. Yeah and funny things about us and dogs/wolves ---

They're about the only other hunters who hunt very largely the way we did. A great deal of a wolf's diet is mice or whatever other little snack like that they can come across near their den. When they hunt, however, they track and pursue, often for great distances, such as their accompanying caribou and reindeer on migrations in the North.

Supposedly, nomadic human hunters did the same. It's rather strange, isn't it, that these two competing predator species living off the same kind of prey would 'marry up' at least in part.
