Wolves (Canis lupus) are highly social animals and live in packs. In Yellowstone, packs contain from 3 to 14 individuals, with some occasionally having twice that number. Pack size varies based on the size of its main prey. The pack is a complex social family, with leaders (the alpha male and alpha female) and subordi¬nates, each having individual personality traits and roles in the pack.
