  • 1. Grey Wolves By Miranda Aguilar
  • 2. What about wolves?
    • Wolves are very intelligent. They are very social animals since they work in packs. To keep order in their pack they have a certain hierarchy. This keeps them organized so they can hunt together and have coordination. Without that, they would not be able to hunt and successfully bring back food.
    • The order of dominance goes; alpha male and female, beta male, sub-dominant males and females, juveniles, and the puppies. If you where to look at a pack you could tell a wolf’s status by looking at its tail. The alpha pair holds their tail straight up, the beta male holds his tail straight out and the sub-dominate wolves keep their tails down. Among the juveniles, they have their own rankings. Often the older are dominate over the younger.
    • Submission is showing they understand they are a lower rank, active submission would be licking a dominate on the chin.submission is showed up the rankings.
  • 3. Submission[ Active submission towards a wolf is represented by  ]
