Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus, vlk obecný eurasijský) from ZOO Prague, Czech republic :la: what a sight! :la:


Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

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.

:) the wolves is also extincted in the Netherlands. But they're slowly coming back. Right now there are wolves just a bid over the border of Holland so sooner or later it will be back in Holland. And I I actually would love to see that happening. Finally a real hunter in the woods. :D

Except for wolves the red deer is also getting more and more back. We do have red deer but only a few I never even seen them only seen the roe.
I've seen the last one only one meter away from me. It was suddenly jumping in front of my bike.
