The pack of wolves at Herberstein Zoo is growing: five arctic wolves saw the light of day a month ago and are now not at all shy in presenting themselves to the public.
Baby boom in Herberstein: This spring, a tapir, lady bison Diana, kangaroo Jumpy and a whole nursery of pygmy goats saw the light of day. Now there are five little arctic wolves. After a foursome last year, the alpha couple Bjelle and Herbert can look forward to a fluffy quintet this year. The five puppies spent the first week in the den and are now exploring the large outdoor enclosure under the care of their three big sisters. The polar wolf’s original home is the Canadian Arctic Islands and Greenland. The brown-grey fur turns beige during the first year of life, and the animals only get their snow-white fur when they are adults. At the commented feeding, visitors can experience the extended family up close every Sunday at 2 p.m.
