Anja18th May 2021
Anja was born on 27th April 2012 and arrived from Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne in 2015. She is a lovely natured European Wolf from Norway and had been involved in dominance skirmishes with her siblings who remained at the park.
An unusual feature of her diet at the park included daily titbits of tinned sardines! The practice involves the tapping of two sardine tines together until she decides to make an appearance. A cautious approach follows after which she gently takes the fishy morsels, licking the oily bits from your fingers before retreating to a more distant part of her territory. An interesting experience for the feeder!
Although having had a high degree of socialisation since the age of six weeks she still has a natural ‘flight’ instinct when approached by people who are unfamiliar and often appears to have a nervous disposition especially in adverse weather conditions.
Anja shares her territory with Bosch and the two are frequently spotten haveing play sessions together.
