  4. 4. Social Organization <ul><li>Arctic wolves live in packs that usually consist of seven to eight members. They have a highly complex social order and each member has a place within the dominance hierarchy. All wolves are aware of the position they hold in the pack through communication with body posture. Packs usually have an Alpha male and Female but all members share the responsibility of caring for the pups. </li></ul>
