What's a wolf pack?

A wolf pack is a wolf family. It usually consists of the parents, the puppies and the offspring from the previous year (yearlings). Sometimes, however, older offspring or grandparents also live in the pack. Under certain conditions also two ferrets (e.g. mother and daughter) can have puppies and/or two males can be the fathers of the puppies.

The size of a pack is usually between 5 and 10 animals, but it changes in the course of the year and also between the years. With the birth of the puppies in April/May the family becomes bigger, with the migration of the yearlings and with deaths it becomes smaller again. For example, the same wolf family can comprise 10-15 animals and at another time only 3-4.
