Nyssa is a very confident wolf. She appears to do whatever she wants, whenever she wants to do it. The one thing she seems to enjoy is the attention of Shadow. There are many photos since the introduction showing Shadow and Nyssa face to face, either greeting, howling or just sharing a moment. Nyssa is quite the dominant pup when it comes to a deer carcass. She still dominates the feeding program and has no concern about taking on Shadow or Malik. Shadow, being more of the caregiver role in the pack, allows the pups to eat whatever they want without too much contact. Malik, doesn't seem to be as patient, and often tries to grab the carcass and run, usually facing the wrath of Nyssa. When staff enter the enclosure, Nyssa jumps right up on the rock to get her greeting, even if it means pushing another wolf off. Last week, Grizzer returned the favor, rolling Nyssa off the back side of the rock to the ground.
