……..So, following on from last time, why could these young wolves be frequently displaying dominance and submission towards each other, or even engaging in conflict!!??…..Well, wolves typically mature at 22 months old, at which age they should either become integrated members of their natal pack or they should disperse and form their own new packs, or even join another existing pack! In any case, they must establish their ranks within their pack’s social hierarchy (of which, two separate linear social hierarchies exist for both females and males!), and in the case of our six new wolfy buddies, they are at the age that they should be establishing these hierarchies……………
