Description

Atila, alpha male wolf and his kid Arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :D


Story of the title: Atila was surely father of the pups from the first litter. But there were doubts, if he really fathered pups who were born in 2009 - because that year was strange. Both females, alpha and beta, gave birth. Beta female killed pups of alpha female and became a dominant female for few weeks. But ZOO says, that it is possible, that Atila's first son, who was born in 2008, is real father of 2009's survived pups. Male wolves are known to grow sexually sooner than in the wild ;)
