Why do wolves mate?
Wolves mate so they can reproduce and have cubs that will carry their genes and make their pack larger.
The only wolves in a pack that are allowed to mate are the alpha male and alpha female. No other male can mate with the female as long as he runs the pack. If he should die or be driven off, the next male in the hierarchy would then take over. The same would happen if the female alpha died or left the pack.
Yes. In the breeding season, when a female is in heat, a lot of male wolves will fight to mate with her. The male wolves fight, and when one of them does get to mate with the female, he guards her, so other wolves know she is taken. However, sometimes, another stronger, older wolf may fight the male wolf, mate with the female again, and stay with her for life.
All wolves do not really have a 'Captain', but packs of wolves have leaders. The leaders are the breeding pair and the two wolves who mate and rear their young. Usually in a wolf pack the leader is the founder of the pack(along with his/her mate). Sometimes other wolves challenge their leadership, and if they win become the new leader.
In Wolfquest 2 will there be other wolves like the first one or will it just be you your mate and your pups?
Yes.Red wolves because they are so much alike will sometimes mate with coyotes which is one of the three threats of their survival the other two are the hunting of wolves and habitat destruction red wolves and coyotes are do much alike that they are sometimes mistaken for each other scientists only found four pure bred red wolves and the rest were all half coyote.
