When he was in charge by woxys When he was in charge by woxys
Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus) from ZOO Prague, Czech republic :D

Lobo, the last winter when he was a strong leader of the whole pack. Then he got weaker because of his old age, he lost his alpha position and was treated so horribly by other pack members that the ZOO decided to be merciful and put him to sleep. I miss him, he was amazing alpha...

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

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.


To see more, look at my WOLVES GALLERY :aww:

Awww :tears: Poor Lobo.

I have dachsunds at my house and our chocolate female had an officer friend of ours with his chocolate male and hiss name was Camo. Right after the birth I heard that all the other boarding dogs got onto him cuz he was alpha and killed him.

RIP Lobo. *Hug*

*grabs the right wolf by the mane and wrestles him down* And you remember YOUR place!

Yeah it's strange how things can do a complete 180 one people and animals. Well lets see how the pack does now.
