Anita had not been in Polar Zoo in about 2 months. When she returned someone had the chance to film her first meeting in a long time with the wolves she spent a long time socializing from 16th of May 2008. The video is recorded in Polar Zoo and any questions related to socializing process should be taken with them. For more information about the socialized wolf pack go to Polar Zoo.

You can see how the wolves growl at each other a lot. It’s like if one wolf walks up to sniff her and another comes up too, the first will growl protectively in a hands-off way! And did you see that wolf jump on top of another one? I don’t know if that was playfulness or the bigger one (the bigger you are the more higher your position in the pack.) was sorting things out with the smaller one.
Wolf packs are very closely knit. A wolf pack is just a big family of wolves who all work together in their pack! It’s interesting really. The biggest male Alpha is always the leader. If the wolves aren’t hunting or sleeping, they will spend time just nipping, biting, clawing and getting on top of each other to sort things out. Making sure everyone knows who is higher then who in their pack!
