In real life a wolf can have from 5 to 6 pups. There's a record of 11 pups in one littler.

Yes, sintact's almost right. I think it's 4-6 pups in a litter, sometimes 3, but rarely over 6.

usually 4-7 for a grey wolf but depending on the location wolf pups can expirence a 30-over 50% mortality rate in their first year of life. rarely do female wolves give birth to over seven (healthy) pups.
