And another question you may have the answer to:

Can litter mates have different proportion of wolf DNA in them and therefore may have more of the wolf characteristics?
You ask such great questions. I have to vulgarize very much on this. The answer is yes.

This is explained in genetics by the fact that each parent gives half his genes to the pup. The half he gives is not always the same. This is explained by Meiosis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meiosis


So in essence the pups can look very different. And yes I am speaking of litter mates. I guess I tend to do a bit of Anthropomorphism sorry. Also I am assuming we are talking about pups with the same father, where the breeding was under controlled situation.
