I've read about how unscientific and unreliable Shaun Ellis is, that his claims are (excuse me)bullshit, etc. I wonder if I should even bother to read his book? Because just recently my friend gave me "Man who lives with the wolves"(or whatever the title is) as a gift. It'd be a waste to throw it out, and rude to sell it, and there's also no point in just keeping it with no intention of reading. I'm more into Mech, and generally scientific research, but does reading Ellis' book make sense?

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)

Is this bad, or weird that I like to collect stuff with/about wolves? I mean, I always choose notebook with wolf on the cover when possible, always must have wolf calendar, every time I open my closet I see my wolf plushie... well, I just like collecting wolf stuff. But I also study wolves, I guess that collecting wolf stuff in that case shouldn't be weird, but, uh, I feel like a "wolf fan" more than a person who studies wolves. Geez. How do you feel about collecting wolf stuff?

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?)

Do you know what the wolf situation is like in Norway? I've heard they aren't well liked there and that the farmers are trying to get rid of them? I don't want that to happen and I'm going to Norway in a few weeks. Was wondering if there were any events or anything I could do while I was there. Thank you!

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!

I saw the movie alpha&omega with my little niece today and in that movie the whole pack were alpha's and some were omegas because they haven't been to alpha school. My question is: is a pack really almost all alpha or was it just wrong in the movie?

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 :)

Can u tell me the differance b/w an alpha n a beta wolf??

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.
