need three major things to survive - food, water,
and air. In summer, none of these things are a problem,
and wolves split into pairs, build a safe shelter,
and raise puppies. In winter... there's always air,
they can eat snow if there's no water, but getting food
requires life in a pack.
pack, hierarchy rules. The pack has two dominant
- the alpha male and the alpha female - they can
be the strongest, smartest, or most experienced
wolves in the pack. They are the only ones to breed.
After a hunt, if it was successful, the wolves will
first wait for the leaders to eat out the best pieces,
and when the leaders have eaten, the wolves of the
next highest rank will eat. Sometimes it might even
result that the wolves of the lowest rank get nothing!
the other members of the pack always have
to obey the leaders. If any wolf disobeys the rules,
he will have to fight one of the alpha wolves. If he wins,
he will become the alpha wolf, and the original
leader will leave the pack. If the leader wins,
the disobeying wolf will have to leave the pack.
wolf pack has owns a wide area. That is their territory
- they will fight any other wolf packs that dare
to stray into their land. Or, if it's just one stray
wolf, they might allow him to join the pack.
