Pups vs cubs

Young direwolves are officially referred to as "pups", not "cubs". There is some overlap between the two in real life, but the established term used in on-air dialogue is "pups". --The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:08, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

​Dire Wolf Intelligence

Dire wolfs, while larger than today's wolfs, add smaller skulls and my have been substantially less </span>intelligent. (Wikipedia.) Wizodd (talk) 16:57, February 9, 2014 (UTC)

Direwolves (one seen in the header of this very article) are a fictional creature within A Song of Ice and Fire, giving George R.R. Martin some leeway - and smaller skull size doesn't necessarily equate to lower intelligence. Moreover, warging into the wolves seems to have a lingering effect of increasing their intelligence.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:49, February 9, 2014 (UTC)

Fast growth or timeskip?

I noticed that in episode 1 of season 1, the Direwolves are tiny puppies, not taller than a kid's knee (Bran to be more specific), even during the last scene where Brand climbs the wall. However, at the start of episode 2 the wolves were almost the size of an teen white german shepherd.

Now my question is: this happened beccause Direwolves grow incredibly fast or beccause there was a timeskip of a few months?

...that isn't "incredibly fast" or a timeskip. Haven't you seen how large dogs can grow in a single year?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:10, August 24, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah. I agree with Dragon Demands. I believe that animals, like direwolves, have faster growth rate than humans. I have seen puppies get bigger in a few months.Titanchamp7 (talk) 03:13, August 24, 2015 (UTC) 

Yes, dogs grow fast, but I didn't knew 1 month happened between episodes 1 and 2 (I just rewatched and Bran's mother said she has been plraying for a month), it was even part of the question. So yes, there was a little timeskip, enough to explain the growth.

And my dad gave-away the family dog the day beffore I was born, so I never had a dog (that son of a bitch), thus I can ignore how fast a dog grows.

A "Timeskip" capital T would be if a YEAR passed between episodes. Yes, sometimes weeks pass between different episodes, varying by storyline. One TV season equals roughly one year of story, not ten weeks of story.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 04:52, August 24, 2015 (UTC)

Last time I checked, "timeskip" was not among the few situations where capital letter is used. Also, timeskip doesn't speak about a specific amount of time, but time passing out of screen (or pages). Tecnically, even when a scene at night goes right after one during daytime is a timeskip. So don't say it IS only for specific periods of time.
