An alpha female and male is the head female and male of the pack. Also the alpha female and the alpha male are the only ones that are supposed to mate in the pack. There is only one alpha male and one alpha female per pack.
All wolves have a place in the hierarchy starting from the lowest (subordinance) and going to the highest (dominance)
about the baby wolves?
Most litters or groups of young have 5 or 6 pups. But, a litter can have as many as 12 pups. At birth the pups can’t see or hear.
After 2 weeks the pups can walk, and in about 3 weeks they come out of their den for the first time.
The wolf pups play with each other, wrestling to be on the top. This is how they decide where their place is in the hierarchy. However, sometimes other wolves try to defeat the leader of the pack.
Really, they are not howling at the moon. They are howling to communicate with other packs and to call back pack members.
They howl to show sadness at the death of a mate or the wolf leader.
THEY LIKE LARGE LIVESTOCK, LIKE moose and caribou. They would prefer to hunt BIG GAME, rather than a squirrel or rabbit, but occasionally they will have a snack!
Not true! They will attack you if you come too close, if you hurt one of their babies or pack members, they will also attack if they see you with a gun. Wolves are really gentle creatures.
Arctic wolves eat mostly arctic hares, caribou, musk oxen, and Dall sheep. Minnesota, wolves feed on deer and moose. Red wolves living in the south eat rabbits, beaver, and mice.
The whole pack raises the pups. When the mother’s ready to hunt again, one of the pack members-an older brother or sister-stays with the pups.
The entire pack will help bring the pups food and defend them, if necessary. The pups learn their place on the pack and how to obey pack leaders from the adults. Pups who misbehave are grabbed by the scruff of the neck and carried away from the pack.
All wolves build their den under ground not above ground like in a cave. The mother wolf digs a den or uses an old used one. The den is underground and it goes down in the earth and then it turns and then there’s a lot of space for the mother and the pups when they are born.
By around 4 weeks of age the pups are still too small to follow the pack to the kill, but their teeth are growing and they’re ready to eat solid food.
big to be nursed?
By 8 weeks, the pups have their teeth and no longer need their mother’s milk. She weans them by rolling onto her stomach when they try to nurse.
Hi! Our names are Brittany Lewis and Stacy Yesko. We like wolves a lot and that is one reason we wanted to do this power point presentation. We wanted to prove to people around the world that wolves are gentle creatures, and they are. We hope you have learned a lot about wolves.
