A Pack and Its Pups

May 2006
Scholastic News -- Edition 1;May/Jun2006, Vol. 62 Issue 8, p2
The article focuses on wolf pack, which is made up of the whole wolf family. Before the wolf mother give birth to puppies, she digs a den where she will confine her babies. There, the mother snuggles with the puppies to keep them warm and feeds them milk from her body. When the time comes for the puppies to eat meat, the adult wolves help them out because the puppies cannot chew meat yet. The adults eat meat and spit it up into the puppies' mouths.
