Yuppp, don’t bother to read any of his books. If you want to know why Ellis is shit, this article explains nicely. (I also wouldn’t know what to do with it if it was given to me as a gift D8)
I do the same, but not as intensely as I did as a kid. I actually made a post about all the wolf stuff in my room once!
(P.S.: how do you study wolves! You mean like in your spare time, like I do? Or actually in college?)
You’re right, wolves are a bit of a scape goat in Norway and farmers indeed rather see all of them dead. Here might be some things of interest for you. I don’t know of any current wolf related actions or events, have a look online? Have lots of fun in Norway!
There you go :)
Alpha school hahahahaah omg that is so cute hahaha ^^
I just sort of explained this in a previous message, but okay. The movie is totally wrong. A wolf pack as it typically occurs in the wild is simply a breeding male and female, and their offspring. There is a natural composition (similar to human families), so there’s no need to fight for dominance and therefore ranking terms such as alpha are not in order.
In cases where ranking terms do apply (such as in wolf packs in zoos), there is only one alpha female and one alpha male, forming the alpha pair. They are the only ones to breed, and “rule” the pack.
If you want to read more about pack structure, I wrote this article about it :)
Awww ^^ Yes I am!
I sold almost everything I put up there, I will put new wolf stuff up for sale very soon!

First of all, it’s important to note that ranking terms such as “alpha”, “beta”, and “omega” do not apply to the typical natural wolf pack. There’s been a lot of misconception on these ranking terms.
The view of a typical natural wolf pack being an aggressive assortment of wolves consistently competing with each other to take over the pack (in which the ranking term you are talking about terms can be applied) is outmoded. Only in artificially composed packs such as in zoos, or in very big packs formed by several packs joining together these terms still apply, because in those cases there is no natural pack composition (natural composition is: a breeding pair automatically becomes the “leading” pair - comparable to human families).
If you want to read more have a look in this tag.
To answer your question, alpha is highest rank, beta is second highest rank. The alpha dominates all other wolves in the pack. The beta does so too, except of course over the alpha.
