Three of them

Pack of arctic wolves (Canis lupus arctos, vlk arkticky) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :D taken recently :giggle:

For our dear ~Rosselanor: happy birthday, Rossie :hug:

Do not forget to look at Animal photo calendar 2010 for free! :D



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

"The three little wolves gathered for Christmas dinner among the trees. Twas a fresh deer, which they had asked for quite nicely with 'Thank you' and ' please'.

But none could decide who got the first bite, so they killed two more reindeer who flew towards them, twas an interesting sight.

The dessert, ho ho, was something new. It was red and quite round, and tasted like peppermint dew.

Now all the boys and girls will wake up and say, 'Where are all our gifts? It's Christmas day!'

Well my dear children, I won't lie to you, but the next time you wish to feed wolves, cutting the deer into three equal pieces should do."

Hehe. :giggle: Looks like Christmas might be a bit sad and presentless this year. :XD:

I came up with that just now. What do you think? :D

very very nice story, friend :giggle: as long as the wolves are happy, it is pretty cool! :hug:
Haha, it is funny, that you gain Xmas presents in the morning - we unwrap our presents in the evening :D

Thank you! :hug:

I have some of the strangest, most random thoughts sometimes. All it takes is a little inspiration and I can come up with a totally random story or drawing. :D

Yes, the wolves are quite happy. Now they have bells to wear! And elves to boss around, or have a snack with...(wink, wink) :hungry:

I have heard that some cultures do that. Is it Christmas Eve evening, or Christmas Day evening? I think I've heard of both happening.

well, whole day is called ,,Generous day" and the evening, when you unwrap presents under the tree, is called ,,Generous evening" :aww:

Aww, that's sweet. I wish America could think like that, Generous Day/Evening.

So nice to learn about other cultures! :)
