Atila, the arctic wolf by woxys Atila, the arctic wolf by woxys
Atila, male arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic ;)

____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black – as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. 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 | wolves probably do not see in colours.
ZOO: in the Czech republic, only two ZOOs keep arctic wolves. In Brno, they live in amazing modern huge exhibit. ZOO Olomouc is building new enclosure for them right now.

I like this one. Especially the lights play on a water & Atilla's fur. Well, it's too bright where the sunlight falls directly on him, but overall it's good =^.^=

I don't know if I'm 100% correct on this, but I'm pretty sure that's not the arctic that Arctic Wolf's in...

bohužel... oni ta jezírka neopravují, snad už tři roky je to první jen díra v zemi a druhé, kde byl nádherný vodopád, je jen bahnitá louže :(
