Wolf exhibit

The best thing at Skanes Animal Park is the wolf exhibit. Some 6000-7000 square meters of genuine forest (appr 1,5 acre). So great for the animals! Netted fence around, which is not good for photographers, but there is a roofed platform with acrylic windows. All pictures here are taken through those windows. If you are willing to pay a pretty heavy fee you can walk into the enclosure accompanied by a keeper. You must book in advance. The wolves are not tame, you cannot pat them, but according to the park´s web page they will get curious and approach you. Please note that the park is a very serious institution so this practise is no freak-show; there is no sensationalism like in Thailand "zoos" etc. One of these days I might take up on the offer.
