Be a wolf researcher! Wolf pup ethogram

June 1, 2021

Ethology is the study of behavior, and an ethogram is a list of behaviors, typically of a single species. For this ethogram we have selected a few representative behaviors that pups will exhibit during various growth phases, and therefore, this ethogram is not exhaustive. You will likely observe behaviors not detailed in this booklet (be sure to keep notes of your observations on the pages in the back). We hope you will get a chance to observe all the representative behaviors of each growth phase (check them off on your ethogram’s checklist) by visiting the wolves here in Ely at the International Wolf Center or by “visiting” them online via the wolf cams.
