This wolf is the alpha female of the pack in Kasselburg. She is said to be 16 years old, or rather 17 years in this spring. Which would be so absolutely remarkable
. I mean, in germany you mostly see mixed wannabe north american wolves that are completely faded to grey by the age of 8. And this female shall be almost ten years older! I mean, look how black she is compared to Tina
who is about 12 years old.
But the wolves in Kasselburg are all incredibly black and she definitely has the "brightest" fur compared to her pack-mates. The keeper said that this pack exists for about 30 years now and the first wolves were directly imported from america. So I guess these are really some of the "purest" wolves we have here in germany.
(Sub)species: a north-american subspecies (Canis Lupus)
Age: about 17 years (spring 1995)
Localization: Adler und Wolfspark Kasselburg, Pelm, Germany
