Canini | Dog-like Canids
Canini is a tribe of dog-like canines including dogs, wolves, jackals and coyotes that inhabit different parts of the world. They are representatives of the dog-like carnivorous families (Caninae) and can be identified by a longer tail, shorter torso, and less pointed ears.
Members of the Canini tribe often exhibit social nature and have advanced expressed behaviors, hence you will find them living in a nuclear family and traveling in groups for cooperative hunting and tackling larger prey. This also allows them to be territorial, dominating areas that they live. Throughout history, members such as wolves have been popular motifs in folklore, religion, and mythology. Besides, they have also been in several literature books and fables, in heraldry and emblems.
