It happens almost every time you’re reading a werewolf book. At some point, you’re reading along, and the author mentions something about the werewolf’s knees bending backwards, usually mid-shift or something. I know, enough to make the average reader cringe a little, right? But for someone with any of the right scientific background, it’s enough to make you flinch, and has certainly been a spot of great frustration for me personally.
Why, might you ask? Because the myth of werewolves is a blend of human and wolf physiology, and neither of them have backward facing knees. You might now be looking at your dog laying passed out on her favorite *cough* dog bed aka couch, and be thinking, “They sure look like they’re facing backwards.”More
