I checked out a nonfiction book about wolves from the library. This book claimed...
Wolf Pack wrote:Some wolves leave the pack at one or two years of age to find a mate of their own.
Correct or not? 0.o

yep, its sure true! plus, theres a big difference in age from humans and wolves :wink:

when they say "one or two yrs," well, a wolf of one or two years means that they are a teenager-adult. Now, if you think of one or two yrs for a human, well, thats basically a toddler! But not with wolves :wink:

remember, One-two years = teenager-adult

Yes, it's true.

And this what Rip said, about wolves ages, that's true, too.

In some cases, wolves leave the pack after one year. However, yearling wolves have a much lower chance of survival than wolves of two years. Yearlings have very little hunting experience, and are more likely to die do to starvation, disease, and from territorial disputes with other wolves.

Most wolves leave their packs at around 2 years of age.

Yes it is true, and when you start the game of WQ it will say that you are a 2 year old wolf looking for a mate.

Some of the youngsters,especially the males,leaves the pack when they are one year old,while other will remain with the pack for life.Wolves are ready to breed when they are about two years old.

Yes,that is true.

Incorrect; females are usually the ones to leave, not the males. Also, I believe it's the males who mature a half year after the females do, and they usually do not breed until age 3 anyway.

I read the same book. I think it depends on the wolf and what it chooses, or on the leader's behalf. :?
