Abstract

Wolf is the largest member of the Canidae family. They are carnivores to whom main prays are Artiodactyla with exceptions of hunting domestic animals when they live close to people. They live in social groups called packs which can count between 2 and 20 members, usually around 8. Members of pack hunt, travel, feed and relax together every day of the year. To make that kind of life work they have social structure. The pack core is made of alpha pair which breeds, leads pack’s way and has most privileges. Rests of the pack population are their grown up children or pups. All of the members are involved in raising young. Each pack has its own territory which they mark with scent, and also use howling to keep other wolves away from their ground. Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) diverged from wolves more than 15,000 years ago.
