Discover the Lobo Park in Antequera an unspoilt nature and wildlife park in the heart of Andalusia; where you may look at a wolf eye to eye for the first time in your life!
The wolves in the park live in big enclosures to have enough space to roam, play and hide when they want to. However, out of curiosity the wolves often come close to the observation points where we go with our visitors, allowing them to be seen very well. Some wolves were socialized and some have never been touched by a human hand, yet still they all will come close because they have learnt from the pack to have confidence that no one will bother them. No human interferes with the social development of the pack and therefore one can observe the natural behaviour in the enclosures.
You reach the enclosures by a path which leads you not only to the different enclosures but also to the individual platforms that offer you an excellent view of the wolves:
Alaska Tundra (Canis lupus tundrorum) – The Tundra Wolf is a very long-legged, white wolf of capable of enduring extreme weather conditions. Because of their beautiful white fur they are unfortunately always threatened, especially in the tundra of Alaska.
European (Canis lupus lupus) – Eurasian wolf, is one of the most widespread subspecies. they are found on practically the entire Eurasian continent. The European wolf is a medium sized wolf with a brownish, grey tint. The Eurasian wolf was wiped almost entirely from Western Europe but due to increasing public awareness they are now and slowly increasing in numbers making a coming back.
Iberian (Canis lupus signatus) – The Iberian Wolf is one of the smaller subspecies and is only found on the Iberian Peninsula. Spain today has the largest wolf population of Western Europe the largest of which is found in the Sierra de la Culebra (Zamora, Castilla and Leon).
