Where does the werewolf tail come from??! Where does it go?Werewolf tail

We just had a poll that that asked the question, “does the werewolf have a tail,” the results of this poll were pretty surprising! The results were nearly evenly split on “yes they always have tail” and “most do have tails” …depending. What this is saying is that most of you think that the werewolf does indeed carry a tail!

Why is this surprising? Well, for one, if a werewolf does have a tail where did it come from? Obviously the human side of the wolf did not have the tail, so this would leave only one obvious answer; the tail grew in the process of transforming from the wolf side. Which then leads to the obvious fact that once the werewolf is ready to change back the tail must shrink back into shape!

What I would like to point out is that this process would be rather long, possibly the longest part of the transformation depending on how long the tail actually is. But what if the tail did not actually “shrink” back during transformation. It is highly possible that the tail would snap off (fall off) rather than minimize in size in the very short time it takes a werewolf to compete the reverse transformation. This breaking off of the tail would be completely painless since by the time the transformation is reversing the weighted one is already is so much pain he/ She would never even know that the tail has already fallen off!

    Humans have tailbones, though they are very small and don’t protrude out of our rear ends…

    I didn’t know that… and I felt like haven’t seen you in a long time, sup Hachina!

  3. Either way, when transforming back I think the last thing you’d be worried about would be chasing your tail; even though watching my cat, she makes it look fun. Does anyone think a werewolf joining the military would be a bad thing; my dad wants me to, but I could just see somebody saying, “What the heck is that thing!?” Then catching me, then everyone realizes that we’re real and forcing all werewolves into even more hiding. Just so this is clear, my dad does not know that I’m…er.. different. 😀
