Beta Pack Facts:
The Beta is sort of like a second-in-command or a deputy. There is rarely two betas, often it is just one Beta. The Beta has the job of keeping the pack in order while the Alphas aren't around. When the Alphas return, they are no longer able to order around the pack.

The alpha wolves are usually the ones to make decisions for the pack when the group should go out to hunt or move from one place to another. The parent wolves are the leaders of the pack - the alpha male and alpha female.
