A wolf pack may include 2 to 30 wolves
Wolves usually gather and hunt in groups of 2 to 30 wolves that are led by an alpha wolf. The groups are called packs are considered to be like families. Wolves have a special hierarchy in their packs. An alpha is a leader who is allowed to reproduce, the strongest member. The beta wolves are potential new alphas. There are subordinates that also may become alphas through dominance. The omega helps the pack to resolve conflicts without fights amongst themselves and stand for peace among pack members. A pack mentality is very deep in wolves' nature. Their devotion and loyalty to one another create a unique bond and trust between them.

Gender does not determine leadership position among wolves
Gender is not a factor that followers consider in choosing a leader. Strength, leadership skills, and integrity are the traits that determine an alpha wolf. An alpha has to fight for the position, but there are always other members that will try and take over the leadership. In order to keep its authority, he/she may often have to fight other members.

She isn't actually hiding, she is protecting the throat of her loved one so that she can prevent him from being killed.
