I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

I always look forward to seeing more photos of this great wolf photographer - do not forget to check whole his gallery here: dragonwolf...


The main rule is: ALWAYS GIVE CREDIT.

Even if I do not like what people did with my work, I will always treat them nicely when they at least tried to somehow credit me. On the contrary, I will always hunt down people who repost / use my shots without at least an attempt to show that it is my work.

How to give credit? Probably the best way is something like “Original (link to original photo) taken by :devwoxys”. But “original by woxys” is fair enough. For people who use my art outside of DA, please, always use a full link to my account “Photo belongs to Woxys:”. The link to particular original photo would be appreciated.

Other rule: never cut my signature, please. Cutting my signature is allowed only in situation 8 :)

1) Can I use your photos as a drawing / painting / sculpture reference?

Yes, you definitely can! I am always pleased when other artists use my photos as an inspiration for their own art. So just give me a credit and send me a link to your final work. I will fav it ;) I usually consider such inspired art to be the property of the author who referenced (especially when he/she use my art just to find out how to draw details, like paws of the foxes), but rather contact me before commercial use. But in 99 % cases it would be fine :)

2) Can I use your photos for photomanipulations and brushing?

Yes, you can. Again, credit me and send me a link to your work, so I can fav it. In this case, the commercial use of such modified photos might be problematic, so always contact me before you plan to sell your work. If I see there is just a minor change (especially kids love to modify just the colour of the animal’s eyes), I would not be happy if you were selling such art.

3a) Can I use your art for any commercial purpose? For commercial purpose, I mean: a logo of a company or any other business, a poster, a motive for ANY thing which is for sold/sell, simply any use that might generate profit, even secondary (a logo, a cover for a book, blah blah blah….). Even if this is just "referenced" - like for example using my photo of a leopard and turning it into a STYLIZED logo/graphic or a T-shirt design / puzzle design.

No, you can not use it for profit without my written permission. I do allow people to use my work for commercial purpose under some condition, but it is always non-exclusive right (so I am still allowed to use and sell my photos). It is always a pleasure for me that somebody wants to use my art and if we finally make a deal! But sorry, I want money. I am too poor to just give my photos away ;) there are only two subjects which might get my photos for free and I would deal with them on particular issues. Thanks for understanding.

3b) What about dA commisions? Can I use your photos in that way?
In this case, contact me, please, I will do my best to help :)

4) Can I use your photos on Facebook / Twitter / any other social network?

I am very happy and grateful when people SHARE my work. That’s the point – if you want to use my work on Facebook and other similar social sites, please, always SHARE, never repost. Simply share a link, never download my photo, uploading it in your own gallery. After all, it would be against rules of Facebook if you do that. Please, try to consider how original artists feel when they see Facebook accounts posting their art, which gets hundreds of shares so original artists totally lose control over their own original creation. The same applies to site like “Pinterest”, “Tumbr” , “We heart it” and other similar pages. I hate them. I hate them with passion.

5) Can I use your photos for my school work/project like a presentation about some animal species which needs some illustrative images?

Yes, you can. Please, do not forget to give me a credit. The rule is the same: “Photos belong to Woxys (”.

6) Can I use your photos for a blog / my site?

I am not very happy about ANY reposting of my work, but I understand many people love to write articles about animals and so and they are not able to complete them with their own photos, while I am lucky to be able to snap animals. So yes, you can use them, but ALWAYS give credit, please. And NEVER cut my signature - this rule is especially important when it comes to posting my shots outside of DA. And it would be very appreciated if you stated that nobody else is allowed to take those photos from YOUR blog/site for other use. Also, please consider the number of photos you use for such purpose. Up to 10 would be nice ;)

7) Can I use your photos for a roleplay?

This does not make me happy at all, but… yes, you can. But please, up to three photos and always give credit. And I would appreciate if you did not cut my signature. There is also a great site for free role play photos! =>…

8) Can I use your photo for an avatar / Facebook icon?

For avatar here on dA: yes, you can, just give me credit and make the photo some 200x200 px small.

For Facebook: only if you upload it as 50x50 px version. Also, please, give credit.

For Facebook Timeline motive: you can upload only it that size which is required by Facebook itself for such motive and please, put a “Woxys” sign on that photo and give credit, please.

In this case, you might cut a signature, because it would make a total mess in such a tiny picture :)

9) Am I allowed to use your calendars and free wallpapers?

As it is also clearly written in the terms of use, both wallpapers and calendars are only and ONLY for privat use, you might also send a link to a friend or print it for a friend. You must not upload it anywhere else, you must not repost it, you must not sell it and you must not sell / repost / upload particular images of the calendar.

10) Am I allowed to print your photos?

Yes, but only for private use like decorating your room walls :) the same rule applies to downloading photos, setting them as wallpaper. Private use for one computer is ok. Downloading the photo and sending it to your friend, who would not even know me so he would upload it on some “free wallpaper website” definitely IS NOT ok ;)

Thank you for respecting this. If you want to know more about my "credit is needed", read here before you rant, please! ===>…

Snow leopard (uncia uncia, levhart snezny, irbis) from ZOO Jihlava, Czech republic :giggle:

For my dear :iconallerlei: :heart:

Here is my FACEBOOK account:…
You will find there news about ZOOs, animals, photography and of course, many of my photos :D


:bulletblue: I sell a colourful mug edition with wolf and fox and big cats photos! :aww:

Colourful WOLF MUG by woxys
Colourful FOX mug by woxys
Colourful BIG CATS MUG by woxys
DOLPHIN MUG by woxys


Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:



Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue or yellow eyes.

Colourful WOLF MUG by woxys

Colourful BIG CATS MUG by woxys
DOLPHIN MUG by woxys



Name: Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus)
Location: Eurasia (From Europe, to China and Russia)
Size: 1.6 m long + 50 cm tail, 100 cm high weight: 80 kg
Diet: medium sized ungulates (moufflon, chamois, saiga, wild boar, red deer, roe deer and livestock), smaller prey (frogs, mice, hares) but also fruit
Conservation status: Least Concern in general. But in some countries, there are only few animals. For example in the Czech republic, there are only some 15 Eurasian wolves, so wolves are critically endangered in my country.
Interesting facts: wolves live in the packs with strict hierarchy. Only alpha male and alpha female mate. Femalethen gives birth to 4-7 cubs. Mother and father both take care of them and then whole the pack helps them to rise the pups | wolves were exctinct in the Czech republic, as people successfully killed them all. Now, wolves are slowly returning from Slovakia and some 15 wolves live in Beskydy mountains. Unfortunately, some people still want to kill them, because they are afraid of wolves | fear of wolves is officially called Little Red Riding Hood syndrome | Eurasian wolves are very adaptable | their colourings vary a lot. | wolves have important roles in many myths, legends and fairy tales. They fascinate people.

Perfect mimicry by Allerlei
It is absolutely amazing - if I consider how bad the weather was and that it was muddy exhibit under the trees, you did amazing job when you captured him like this. I love how the puppy blends with the leaves, that really make us know how the nature can hide even such predators.

The photo also still shows the nice playful nature of the pup :D it is really nicely sharp, I have to say I am jealous a bit XD the only thing I do not like that much is that the wolf is in the centre of the image, but that is just a minor thing"

Hi pals,

believe me, I always laugh so hard when I politely inform some person that she/he definitely can not repost photos that belong to other authors here on DA. And then the same person comes to my profile, and as a defence, accusing ME of stealing photos, clearly not being able to understand, that some people simply CAN get that camera and snap few shots :lol:

Have fun too!

EDIT: ok he/she has apologized - end of fun, I hope the lesson has been learned :) thanks for nice words and for attempts to make her/him understand how it works with dA rules :)

(No cruel comments for him/her, please, I just think those arguments are incredibly funny :lol:)

You have great photos. I love animals and I was today at Olomouc ZOO in Czech and try to catch some good photos of animals but my camera isn't so good. Still it was for me an endless fun when trying to catch lemurs at different poses, sometimes funny. King Julien rules :)
