Pack of Timber Wolves ........ by 


The grey wolf or gray wolf, also known as the timber wolf or simply wolf, is the largest wild member of the Canidae family.

Occasionally, single wolves are found in the wild, though packs are more common. Lone wolves are typically old specimens driven from their pack or young adults in search of new territory. Wolf packs in the northern hemisphere tend not to be as compact or unified as those of African Wild Dogs and Spotted Hyenas, though they are not as unstable as those of coyotes.Normally, the pack consists of a male, a female, and their offspring, essentially making the pack a nuclear family.The size of the pack may change over time and is controlled by several factors, including habitat, personalities of individual wolves within a pack, and food supply.

Packs can contain between 2 and 20 wolves, though 8 is a more typical size.An unusually large pack consisting of 36 wolves was reported in 1967 in Alaska.While most breeding pairs are monogamous, there are exceptions. Wolves will usually remain with their parents until the age of two years. Young from the previous season will support their parents in nursing pups of a later year. Wolf cubs are very submissive to their parents, and remain so after reaching sexual maturity. On occasion in captivity, subordinate wolves may rise up and challenge the dominant pair; such revolts may result in daughters killing mothers and sons killing fathers.This behavior has never been documented in the wild,and it is hypothesized that it only happens in captivity because dispersal is impossible.There are no documented cases of subordinate wolves challenging the leadership of their parents.Instead of openly challenging the leadership of the pack leaders, most young wolves between the ages of 1–4 years leave their family in order to search for, or start, a pack of their own.

Wolves acting unusually, such as epileptic pups or thrashing adults crippled by a trap or a gunshot, are usually killed by other members of their own pack.Asiatic and Middle Eastern wolves tend to be less inclined to socialising with any other member of their species outside their own nuclear family, passing their lives more frequently either in pairs or as social individuals, much like coyotes and dingoes.

    Well doesnt this make me jealous!!!

    Great job!! What a well timed shot. Exposure and lighting are very good as well.

    Where ever did you take this shot?

    I have been wanting to visit the Wolf Park in Indiana for some time now. They have photo session where they allow you to go into the wooded enclosure with the wolves. It cost like $275 for the day.

    I really need on doing a few more portraits sessions and save the money for the Wolf Park.

    This one heads to my favs!!

  • Hi’ Scott that really is a awesome comment made thank you ! A similar park in England and charge similar rates for photo shoots however in this case I was a little lucky as they wanted a poster image for the park grounds if I could produce this to there liking then I pay nothing’ has luck would have it’ they were delighted with the results ……. Thanks again for the fav my freind !! …….
