The guard got high



Huge arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Olomouc, Czech republic :D

Story of the photo: In this ZOO, black bears and arctic wolves live together in one big brand new exhibit. ZOO supposed the bears to be dominant species, so they prepared a safe area for wolves. Bears can not get there, so wolves can rise their youngs there and so. But yesterday, I saw wolves standing in front or the burrow for bears - only head of one bear was visible, because wolves were guarding the entrance. It seemed that the wolves did not want to allow the bears to get to the shared main exhibit! :O_o: This wolf proudly stays on the tree, which gave it the great possibility to observe the area :D

I offer you a wolf calendar - for RANDOM reward. You can get it FOR FREE! :aww: you can send me some points or so, only if you like it :D it is not commercial :D

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:
