Unfortunately blue-eyed by woxys Unfortunately blue-eyed by woxys
Arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :D
Here you can see first photos of baby wolf puppies born in 2011 - [link] :love:


Story of the photo: I think this young wolf is "Vlčenka" - me and *Allerlei gave this lovely nickname to young female, who was extremely friendly and attention seeking. She loved to make people look at her - I have never seen similar wolf! But one day I saw a young wolf with a strange injury over the eye area. The wolf was somehow much more quiet, not interacting at all. I think it was Vlčenka - I do not know what happened, if the injury was caused by some accident, by other wolves or by stupid visitors. But after some time, wound was healed. Unfortunately, the eye stays milky-blue, so I suppose this young wolf is half-blind. The good new is, that during my last visits, this wolf seemed to me somehow happier again... But I still miss our attention seeking Vlčenka.

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

Even though it was caused by an injury, the blue eye looks pretty on a white wolf ;)

Cataract of gaff ulceration.Can't be healed,but a surgery intervention can be made and can give back the use of the eye.

A very nice photo! Poor Vlčenka, I hope she stays happy even with her unfortunate disability. Although I think that blue eye is a very nice addition to her beauty as a wolf. If her left eye is a sky-blue; is her right eye amber?

I wonder what happened... but I will say that even if it isn't quite natural, it still is stunning. At first I just thought it was because of the angle and the lighting.

She is still gorgeous! sometimes animals who become half-blind often seem to be a lot smarter than animals with full sight. I think cause they have to be more alert, especially on their blindside, they notice things sooner than others. This is based off of a lot of the horses I've worked with at a rescue farm, we sometimes get horses who are blind or half-blind, sadly a few weren't born that way. I don't know if it's the same with other animals but they act this way in herd settings like the way we keep the horses in 24/7 pasture (cept for the really sick ones) Nevertheless she is beautiful!!! wonderful shot!
