He loved snow so much by woxys He loved snow so much by woxys
Lobo, amazing and incredible alpha wolf. He was a very strong and powerful leader, being so hansome with his unusually reddish-dark grey coat. Lobo had a lot of dignity, but when the winter came, he was able to roll in snow like a puppy :heart: He is dead now. He died some two years ago and I miss him. But he was old and he fathered many pups with his life-mate Boja, so it is not tragical :) just a circle of life.

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.

I like this picture. Just look at him there, burying his front legs in the snow. He looks a little grumpy, actually. I wonder, is he trying to hide something? XD

Quite the extraordinary looking creature. Very nice photo!


Might I ask though, what the significance of the name Lobo is? I've seen it quite a few times recently and every time has been in regard to wolves.

Lobo means "Wolf" in Spanish and it was also a name of one legendary wolf in America, who got to be killed my people...

The playful father in winter. At least he died of old age. I would imagine that's a rarity in the wild.

I will proudly say that I LOVE wolves! They're beautiful, but deadly, vicious, but also affectionate to their pack members. It's also my spirit/totem animal.

:iconwoxys:
woxys Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014
well, the life of the pack is VERY rough. In fact, Lobo was euthanized as other wolves attacked him so much that he suffered a lot after he lost his alha position. So... affectionate? Not that much :)
