About This Quiz

Humans have long been curious about wolves. Of all of the societies in the world outside of humans, the wolves seem to have the strongest. In fact, some would argue that wolves are superior to humans in how their societies are organized. With that said, just like with humans, where you rank in the wolf pack has a lot to do with how well things go for you.

How high would you rank if you were part of a wolf pack? At the very top is the Alpha. Every pack has to have at least one Alpha. If the Alpha gives an order, everyone follows it with no questions asked. That sounds great, right? Well, except for the fact that there always are other wolves ready to take down the Alpha and assume his role.

Then there are the Betas, who are second in command and serve as the advisors to the Alpha, the Deltas, who act as mediators and messengers, and the Gammas, who are the protectors of the pack. There also are Omegas, the lowest members of the pack who get bossed around and often go hungry. How high up are you in the wolf pack? Take this quiz and find out.
