Arctic wolves of Zoo Brno

Another photo blog today. I am planning another trip back to Europe and can't wait to visit all the zoos again. Zoo Brno in the Czech Republic is famous for their arctic wolves. There is Atilla the alpha male, Clair and Alex are the females and have both produced pups and then all the kids!
The Arctic wolf is a subspecies of the gray wolf and live in arctic areas along the northern edge of the North American continent and northward to the North Pole, as well as along the eastern and northern shores of Greenland. There habitat stays very cold at around -30 degrees C but their coats are very think and insulated form the harsh temperatures. They generally only have a lifespan in the wild of 7 years and live in small packs. The only predators they have ot worry about is polar bears, other wolves and humans.
Hope you enjoy the photos :)
