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.
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 .
What do wolves eat? 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.
Who brings the pups food? 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.
Where do wolves build their dens? 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 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.
When are the pups too big to be nursed?
