30 Pictures That Will Make You Fall In Love With Wolves
Most people are familiar with the concept of an Alpha male, as it pertains to wolf packs, but larger packs will often also have an “omega” wolf. This wolf is at the bottom of the pecking order and is also often the target of the alpha’s and pack’s “social aggression,” even to the point of being exiled.
Gray wolves differ slightly in size, color, and skull size across different regions, with such slight differences that scientists don’t always agree on how many races there are. Twenty-four subspecies were originally defined in North America, but today many believe there may be as few as five different wolf subspecies in North America.
Wolves use urination and defecation as a form of scent marking, allowing them to claim and mark their territory. When breeding season nears, alpha pairs will often urinate in the same spot to alert other wolves that a pair has already bonded, and also perhaps as a signal to each other they are ready to mate.
Howling is used by wolves for several functions: reassembling the pack after a long chase, as a social bonding method, and to protect its territory against other packs. Wolves tend to howl more when they are protecting something, like their pups or food, to warn any other packs in the area to beware.

Maybe when people have the myths about wolves stripped away through education they will then appreciste them for the beautiful animals they are not as the fairy tale of Red Ridinghood portrays them as eating peook e up.

Beautiful mysterious animals with such a tight pack structure loving/protective family. They have great intuition as well. Just a wonderful peak into their lives. ..... Thank you for sharing.
Beautiful pictures. Wolves are so misunderstood as they only kill for food. For those who attempt to educate people about wolves (U.S. Wolf Refuge, Sparks, Nevada), keep up your good work. Maybe someday people come to see these beautiful animals are not to be feared but revered.
