***Vulpines v. Humans (Part 2)***
Emotions and Intelligence

Humans and Vulpines both exhibit a wide variety of emotions and are considered intelligent beings...Here's how they stack up on these issues.

Emotions
 
Humans: Many humans express a wide variety of emotions...some good, some bad, and some downright ugly.  While humans are usually relatively content or in a good mood, they can also experience mood swings on the turn of a dime.
 
For instance, humans can and sometimes do get angry for the wrong reasons (I.E.: The team that you picked to win the NCAA tournament gets "bounced" in the "Sweet 16"*, etc.).  Most of the time, however, humans are able to get enough control over these emotions to avoid doing something regretable (or even illegal).  However, there are times where intense emotions cause humans to do things that they normally wouldn't do under normal circumstances.  In addition, some humans have behavioral and/or emotional problems that cause them to act in strange (and sometimes dangerous) ways that they have little or no control over.

Vulpines: Like humans, Vulpines are generally content and rarely get angry.  However, when a Vulpine gets mad, it's usually for a better reason than a human might have for getting angry (I.E.: Protection of self and/or others).  Vulpines generally do not have the behavioral and/or emotional problems that some humans have...though there are exceptions.
 
It is important to note that in general, Humans and Vulpines get along very well together (particularly among Canines, most rodent species, Dolphins, Orcas, and Seals).  It is exceptionally rare that a Vulpine would react hostily towards a human (and 99%+ of the time it's because the human did something that they did wrong).
 
Intelligence
 
Humans: At birth, human babies are unable to talk, walk, or care for themselves.  As the humans grow up, they gradually increase their intelligence level by learning from their parents and from schools.  The average human I.Q. is 100, some have higher I.Q.'s and some have lower I.Q.'s.  The humans with higher I.Q.'s usually (though not always) are more successful in life than humans with lower I.Q.'s
 
Vulpines: Unlike humans, Vulpine children at birth are more advanced than human children.  Most Vulpine children at birth have the intelligence level of a 6-year old human child.  Newborn Vulpines can walk, talk, and (in a limited sense) defend themselves if the need were to arise.  Average Vulpine I.Q.'s vary based on species and generally range from about 150-200 (Canine species, Dolphins and Orcas have the highest average I.Q.'s...around 200, while rodents and hooved mammals** have the lowest averages...around 150).  But almost all Vulpines have higher I.Q. levels than an average human.  Still, all Vulpine species are highly intelligent and pride themselves on what they know...this is why Vulpine technology is more advanced than Human technology.  It is also why Vulpines are generally more peaceful than Humans.

*: Even though it is frustrating...it's still no reason to throw a beer can or bottle at the TV (or worse, do something like flip off or moon the players and/or referees).
**: Horses, Deer (even though Vulpine deer don't have hooves), Sheep, etc.
