Foxy stars of ‘Teen Wolf’

Don’t you love it when a writer tries to use an unusual or fancy-pants word and gets it wrong? Me, too. I just love the use of vulpine in this article on Yahoo! Style about “Teen Wolf” stars:

vulpine-sty

Vulpine refers to a fox or something resembling a fox. The word that refers to a wolf is lupine.
