Sad melody of howling by woxys Sad melody of howling by woxys
Howling Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus) from ZOO Ohrada, Hluboka nad Vltavou, Czech republic :D


Newest photo ----> unique comic with a fennec fox! :D


Story of the photo: I post this, because I like the pose of the wolf, its expression and also perspective :nod: this fellow was alone in the enclosure, which is surelly not the best or largest one. It was howling and it immediately recieved an answer - I think there was another wolf separated behind the scenes. The howling sounded somehow sad....

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.
