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.

Ever been to the Seacrest Wolf preserve in Chipley, Florida? Its amazing, and they have tours every weekend for (I believe but am not positive) about $30 per person. Tours are available on weekdays too, but are extremely expensive. They have Timber (Grey wolves) and Artic Wolves. The tour also includes getting to see and interact with foxes, de-scented skunks, and trash pandas (raccoons) :). This is not an advertisement btw in any shape or form. I just really enjoyed it.

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...
