Well-known for their family life and hierachy the dominant wolf is called an Alpha male and is pack leader to 12 to 15 animals and the Omega wolf being the most subservient member of the pack.
Known as keystone predators as they regulate herd animals by taking out the sick and weak animals.
Their spine-tingling howl attracts the attention of the whole pack so keeping each other safe, alert and in contact.
A wolf’s sense of smell is 100 times better than a human’s and can smell other animals up to 1 mile away!
Our two males, Rocky and Chaser, and three females, Aspen, Cedar, and Idaho, are from the same litter born in June 2010 at Colchester Zoo. They are not part of a breeding programme as their bloodline has been bred very successfully in the UK.
