Our wolves

Thirteen wolves currently live at the WSC. Here you can find information about their origins and characters. We keep American grey wolves here at the Wolf Science Center, as they are less shy towards people than the European wolf, which is the wolf native to Austria. A relaxed relationship to people is very important for our research, regarding the tasks the animals get to solve here at the WSC. You can read more about these here.

If you especially like one of our animals, you can find more information on the possibilities of fostering programs here


The Grinch

Amarok is certainly one of the few wolves that is almost never afraid of anything.


The clown of the pack

Chitto is a master in the art if living who does not take life too seriously and usually gets what he wants with his stubborn friendliness towards higher-ranking pack members.


The Blob

Etu is one of the three males of the wolf puppy generation of 2016. He is a curious contemporary who comes up with stupid ideas from time to time.


Handsome and shy

Geronimo is handsome, and he knows it too. The dream of every wolf photographer!


White bear

Listening to Kenai howl is very impressive. He has a very clear, deep and strong voice.


The muscleman

Maikan is a handsome, very motivated wolf male who is very affectionate to his caregivers, but above all to his pack. Otherwise, he is rather sceptical and careful.


Our cuddlewolf

Nanuk is satisfied lying in the shade. Now and then he looks up at the birds or looks around him at his surroundings with his head tilted.


Black Beauty

Taima is the second female of our generation of wolves in 2016. She is very gentle when she chooses to make contact, but since she is still shy, she prefers to observe what is going on around her from a distance.


The leader

Tala lead the pack within 10 months. At first, she was overwhelmed with her new role, but she grew into it very well. However, it is still very important to her to make it regularly clear that she is the boss.


Fearful dwarf

Tekoa is a petite, very pretty little male wolf, but he is a sly one.


The meerkat

Her name as the meerkat has stuck until today. She got her nickname as a puppy, as when she was excited when one of the hand-raisers passed by the enclosure, she always sat straight upright on the hill with ears pointed wearing an almost grin on her face, so a similarity to a meerkat could not be denied.


The wolf with a thousand faces

Many visitors first notice his bright yellow eyes, which stand out clearly from his black-gray fur.


Beauty in grey

As cuddly as she can be with the people she knows, she is very reluctant to be petted by unfamiliar human beings. Generous as she is, Lady Yukon will give her paw if she is rewarded for it.
