A fox? No, rare wolf pup by woxys A fox? No, rare wolf pup by woxys
Baby Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus, vlk ibersky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :aww:

Story of the photo: during my previous visit, I was shocked and happy to find out, that ZOO Olomouc displays amazing Iberian wolves. I supposed that those wolves are pretty old, but still they were amazing. But when I visited them again, hoping to take at least some journal photos, my jaw literally hit the ground! I saw three cute pups with huge ears, who were playing near their mommy, who was proudly sitting next to them :heart: I could not stop watching them - and I was even more happier, when at least this photo turned out well enough to be posted! :D so I can finally offer you at least this photo of wolf pups :giggle: enjoy and note the ears! :D




Thank you very much for all your comments and faves :hug:

Or look at all the effort that's been taken to get themback in their normal areas (or what's left of those).
Recently the naturalists here in Germany got all excited because some wild wolves decided to go and set up their new hunting ground in the german-polish border regions...
