Description

Baby Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus, vlk ibersky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :aww:

Story of the photo: during my previous visit, I was shocked and happy to find out, that ZOO Olomouc displays amazing Iberian wolves. I supposed that those wolves are pretty old, but still they were amazing. But when I visited them again, hoping to take at least some journal photos, my jaw literally hit the ground! I saw three cute pups with huge ears, who were playing near their mommy, who was proudly sitting next to them :heart: I could not stop watching them - and I was even more happier, when at least this photo turned out well enough to be posted! :D so I can finally offer you at least this photo of wolf pups :giggle: enjoy and note the ears! :D




Thank you very much for all your comments and faves :hug:
