Written by Ethology Participant: Anna Schmidt<br> Malik, the smaller of the International Wolf Center's Arctic wolves, is often exhibits a docile behavior. This is due to his thirteen years of age. He lives with his brother Shadow, in an enclosure and is often found resting in the den to get away from the Minnesota bugs. Malik spends part of his day wandering around the perimeter of the enclosure to cheek out sounds. He whines when he is nervous or wants attention. When an ambulance is heard in the distance, this initiates the white wolves to start howling. Even though Malik is old for a wolf, he is still observant. His ears prick forward, his nose raises up to sniff the air, and his narrow eyes focus forward whenever there is a strange stimuli.
