We have eight Arctic wolves, two female and six males. Only the two females have names, Debi (17 years old) and Dixie (10 years old). Debi used to be the mate
of the alpha male (Elbar) but since he has died she has gone to the bottom of the pecking order. Elbar has not been replaced and they continue to jostle for the top
position. Of the remaining males, four are nine years old; one is eight and the other seven. All are captive born.
