Arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO brno, Czech republic :D

I love the feeling of this photo, it looks like the female (Alex or Claire) was trying to comfort Atila, who seems to be relaxed now. I need a hug too, I feel alone :(

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black – as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence

Truly I couldn't imagine one with such talent and fame as yourself feeling alone... Still, if you ever wanted someone to chat with, perhaps we could skype sometime? It's probably not the greatest idea though, seeing as I'm usually working evenings and up in the wee hours of the morning here. XD
