Artist Comments: A hierarchy exists in all wolf packs with the alpha pair as the pack leaders. This pair will mate for life and are the breeding pair of the pack. They tend to stand more erect, with ears and tails held high, to show their status in the group. Subservient members of the pack will hold their ears flatter and lower their tails. If an animal leaves the group, around two years of age, it has a chance of finding a mate and creating it own pack through its offspring.
