I was wondering, has there ever been a pack with more than 1 male in it, I keep hearing yes, I'm not sure,or no. Does anyone know if there has been?

  • There are definitely wolf packs with more than one male member in them :) . A typical wolf pack unit consists of the dominant/breeding pair (mom and dad) and their offspring (brothers and sisters). Some of these offspring may disperse once they come of a certain reproductive age to start their own families, but some stay within their birth pack for longer periods, or even their entire lives. That is the most common way to have a pack with more than one male member.

    For more general info on wolf pack structure, check out : http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=942.

Yes. Wolf packs can have subordinate adult wolves that help hunt and take care of the pups. However, there is usually only one breeding pair, the dominant male and female.

Definitely!
It's quite rare, I say myself - however, it's possible. I've seen them with my own eyes, two players describing themselves as led. It's quite funny, however, that there is usually one to zero males in a server, eh?

They're talking about real wolves, not the game.
But yeah, normally wolf packs can have more than one male.

There is no such thing as a "subordinate" in a wolf pack. As nightangelwolf said, a group consists of one dominant, mating pair (once known as alphas) and their children. That system of ranking was cast aside when it was realized wolf packs aren't so rigidly structured.
