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

okay. Just a thought. So are the wolves at a preserve in Czech?

nope, we have ZOOs for ZOO wolves and we have a small population of wild wolves :nod: but they have no special reservation made for them :)
and if you mean "protected by law" by "at preserve", then yes - wolves in my country are protected and nobody is allowed to hurt them or to kill them :D

i love your wolfs pictures, they are captured very well and shows alot of a wolf in there natural habitat. I really like this one it reminds me of a character i drew for my friends comic( it is a loveless doujinshi where people have animal ears and tails) he is based of of a white wolf and if he was just a wolf i belieive he would look like this.

please keep up the good work

Really stunning you have a fantastic eye for an amazing image. The eyes really stand out against that amazing white fur and i love the added info. Do you know the differeance between a white fured animal and a grey animal is not down to the fur colour but the colour of the skin if the skin is pink then the fur is classed as white if the skin is a blue grey colour the animal is classed as grey. Dont know why i added that fact in lol but there ya go:butterfly::D
