I believe the eye color change is due to increased production of melanin by melanocytes, which are cells in the iris of the eye.

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

When a wolf pack wakes up from sleep, do they all wake up around the same time? If so, what if one where to not wake up at the same time as another, would they assume it to be dead? Great question. It's not unusual for wolves to wake up at different times, and when I've seen this happen in Yellowst...

Members of a breeding pair typically mate with only each other, but in packs where one member of the pair is unrelated to another adult in the pack, then it's not unusual for the two to also mate.

No, a dominant wolf would generally not permanently leave its pack.

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

If you became a veterinarian in exotics, would it be possible to work with wolves, such as in a zoo of some sort? I know it would take a while but is it possible in that branch of veterinary medicine? Yes, veterinarians do work with wolves in captive facilities such as zoos, and also wolves in the ...

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

When are wolves most active? Or do they live a randomly schedualed (or however you spell it) day/night? In Yellowstone National Park, where I've spent the most time watching, wolves tend to be most active early in the morning and again in the evening with a lull during mid-day when daytime temperat...

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

Do wolves cache a lot of meat, and do packs take meat from a kill back to the den? Yes, wolves do cache meat and they also do deliver meat from a kill to the den. Wolves living in places where prey are scarce, such as in the High Arctic, seem to cache more than wolves living in areas where prey are...

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

I get a bit confused with the social structure of a wild wolf pack when it comes to the dominants; Does the dominant pair actually 'lead' (or even command..?) their pack, or are they just the most dominant ones, etc? I know the dominant pair are what their title is: the most dominant as well as the...

Re: Live Wolf Q&A with a wolf expert!

My question is this...why would she have been howling like that? That one event remains the only time I have ever seen her howling by herself, and her howl was different from her usual tone. It's hard to be sure about this since I didn't witness it myself, but your description suggests to me that K...
