Peek peek peeking! by woxys Peek peek peeking! by woxys
Waki, male Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus) from ZOO Decin, Czech republic. He is dead now... but fortunately, it was natural death caused by very high age. I fell in love with him, as he was very hansome wolf - I saw him only once, but I will remember him!

And I am quite proud of this photo :D
And the title? It is often said that wolves walk absolutely quietly, making no noise. In fact, their steps can be heard without problems ;) I often sit near wolves and when they are not active, I for example delete bad photos from my camera - and sounds of walking always make me look into the exhibit, as they are a sign of new activity of wolves :)




A wolf I shot --------->

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.

First I have to say,What a lovely, amazing photograph! But I also have to say: What a wonderful way to use your copyright watermark! You can still see it's there on many of your lovely photos, yet it doesn't "ruin the picture" like this:

Please don't ruin your pictures!

He has such a curious expression. It's good to know that he died after living a long life!
