Chito is a huge female Wolf. She was born in the spring of 2007. True to her Choctaw name which means ENORMOUS, she has remained the largest female by far in the Wolf Howl Pack. She also held the record for the pup who did everything first. She held her own and often bests the other pups in tests of dominance. Once she was returned to the main enclosure with the rest of the Pack that seemed to change. Her and Nita became the lowest ranking members of the pack. She was so sweet to our tiny Omega, Nita. They were best buds as well as Sisters. Woha claimed the dominant pup position in the pack and ruled with an iron jaw over the rest of the pups. Now, I have seen that Chito is interested in moving up her position in the pack. With maturity comes the desire to breed and though she hasn’t been through a cycle yet, nature is telling her to get ready. In addition to flirting with Waya, a subordinate male, she is starting to dominate over Nita. I was sorry to see this special bond end over rank. She has also joined forces with Ohoyo, the Alpha Female against Woha.
She absolutely loves to howl and I can always get her to answer me even when she can’t see me. She is the Wolf that starts most chorus howls. Her voice is deep and beautiful.
