Was indeed awesome. I have for the second time in my life had a wild animal weighing more than myself in my lap. IN MY LAP. Ah well, I was sitting down scratching one wolf on the tummy while another thought that wolf number one was getting way too much attention. Biting and jumping on him was the consequences, which left me almost on my back. It was quite nice, although I did get some small scratches on my camera^^ But hey, who doesn’t wanna brag about having your camera scratched by a wolf? (or two in this case)
In the enclosure we were at this time there was eight male wolves, all three years old. Practically enough they were all named Wolf, but in different languages!
There was a few of them that really stood out, and therefore I remember their names!
There was Úlfur, who was pack leader and I have to say he was very democratic! He was nice and playful with the others and cut them an awful lot of slack XD But the keepers told us that he really could step in and show who’s boss if it would be needed!
And then there was Farkas, who I would call the class clown. Whenever something was happening, he was there, jumping and taking up as much space as possible. He was also the one who on more than one occasion ended up in my lap ;D
I always kept track on him because he was easy to spot! He had a small black dot on his forehead and very light yellow eyes, almost creamy!
There was also Vilkas (I think) who was reddish yellow! Very pretty thing, but I didn’t have the chance to get as many photos of him. I have one which I will upload here later with lots of motion blur XD
And the only wolf I didn’t see up close was Lobo,who was lowest in rank. He wasn’t even allowed to come down and greet us :<
Always lurking around in the outskirts.
And of course there was four more, who I don’t remember the names of, but they were nice as well^^
