Baby arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :D


As I am very proud on this photo, I dedicate it to my best friend *Allerlei :aww:
____________


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
ZOO: to see exhibit of arctic wolves, click Here ;)

because it is a cub - baby arctic wolves are born almost black and they slowly turn to white :D 2009 litter is still slightly brown :nod:
