Shy? But you are a monster...? by woxys Shy? But you are a monster...? by woxys
Male Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus) from ZOOpark Chomutov, Czech republic. This male is son of Boja and Lobo, famous wolves stars from ZOO Prague :D

There are still many people, who think that wolves are evil monsters. They are not! They are effective hunters, they care for their babies and they do not attack humans.

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.

Without the wild animal, man would surely die from a great loss of spirit :/

Are you seriously implying that the fear of wolves began with "Little Red Riding Hood"?

are you serious with this interpretation of the text?

I haven't interpreted anything (yet), I'm just asking.

I have never said, that the fear of wolves began with "Little Red Riding Hood". So.

:icondark-hyena:
Alright. I just think by giving the fear of wolves that name is giving Little Red Riding Hood a little too much credit than it deserves.
