What does it mean to be an Omega in a wolf pack?
Subordinate: Each member of the pack who is not an alpha, beta, or omega. • Omega: The lowest ranking Wolf of the pack. Like a family, the Wolf pack is a social unit. The pack consists of the breeding pair, or parents, called the alphas and their daughters, sons, sisters, and brothers.
A wolf pack has a definite social structure and rules of conduct. The pack leaders are the alpha male and female. These two animals are dominant over all the other wolves in the pack. The alpha male and female are the only wolves that breed and produce pups in the pack, and they also get to eat first at kills.
- Wolf Families. Wolves live in family groups called packs. A pack is usually made up of a male parent, a female parent and their pups from the last few years. Pups grow inside their mother for about 63 days before they are born.
- …in natural wolf packs, the alpha male or female are merely the breeding animals, the parents of the pack, and dominance contests with other wolves are rare, if they exist at all … calling a wolf an alpha is usually no more appropriate than referring to a human parent or a doe deer as an alpha.
- The Alpha Female is a strong, majestic female. She can often be intimidating to those around her and isn't afraid to ask for what she wants. She's killing it in her career and has a solid group of friends to rely on. There's nothing quite as brilliant as a woman with confidence and ambition.
