How many wolves in a pack?

pack wolves

Wolf packs usually consist of 5 to 10 individuals, including the alpha male and female. These two are usually the only ones to mate, decide when the pack will travel and hunt, and normally are the first to eat at a kill. The rest of the pack may consist of pups from the current year and a few offspring from the past year or two that are subordinate to the breeding adults. Packs can be substantially larger in size (up to 20 or more wolves) in locations with abundant prey.
