World Factbook Entry

This is the Ivory Tower.
Isolated from mundane worries, protected from strife, it rises up out of the Forest of Dream. Birds travel to and fro from south of the Vixen Valley and beyond the Open Sea.

Inside the Tower, there is a serene tranquility.
Be welcome to this region, even if it is only for a short time.
Unless you are an invader, in which case you will be dealt with as quickly as possible.

Description
The matervulpus (colloquially known as wolfmother; lupinmama is a large, quadrupedal and mammal that resembles a wolf or a hyena. Its fur is mainly silvery-gray, and it has a sleek voluminous mane of long black ruffled fur extending all the way down its back, to its tail, which is also long and black-furred. It has black patches of fur below its eyes, and on its forehead. Its legs are black, and it has large sharp-clawed feet. It has upright, pointed ears with black insides, bright red intimidating eyes with yellow sclerae, and slit pupils, a long muzzle, and a large black nose. It has sharp fangs, seen when it opens its mouth and snarls. Matervulpi are typically gray and black, sometimes with a lighter underbody or reddish tints. Some are light gray and white or reddish tan or mixed red and gray. A few are true albinoes. They mostly have golden to green eyes with some having hazel, amber or albino red irises.

An adult matervulpus is as large as a small horse, and can rip a man's arm from its socket. Even a juvenile matervulpus is quite capable of killing a man by ripping out his throat. Physically, they are not simply larger versions of wolves, but have slightly different proportions than their smaller cousins; their heads are larger with a leaner, more pronounced muzzle, their legs are longer in proportion to their body, and they have proportionately larger teeth that are often used to crush bones.

The matervulpus is the largest species of the genus Canis known to have existed, often the size of ponies. Its shape and proportions is similar to those of two modern North American wolves: the Yukon wolf (Canis lupus pambasileus) and the Northwestern wolf (Canis lupus occidentalis). The largest northern wolves today have a shoulder height (SH) of 38 in (97 cm) and a body length (BL) of 69 in (180 cm), whereas matervulpi are SH 60 in (152cm) and BL 91in (231cm)


Behaviour

Matervulpi live in a pack, or ‘clan’ of up to eighty members. As a member of this pack follows the orders of its leader and chases down prey. It gives obvious signals when it is about to attack, as it starts to growl deeply and flattens its body. Matervulpi defeat foes with perfectly coordinated teamwork.

A matervulpus clan is one of the very few female-dominated societies amongst the mammals. It's not too uncommon to find species of insects or fish where the female is bigger than the male, but this is highly unusual for mammals. Female matervulpi are, however, bigger than the males on average, and more aggressive. They also outrank the males in the social hierarchy of the species, to the extent that the lowest ranking female is still considered superior to the highest ranking male. This organized social structure seems to be one of the main factors underpinning the success of the matervulpus as a species. Experiments have indicated that the intelligence of the matervulpus is on a par with that of the primates, and seems to be even greater when it comes to problems requiring co-operation.
