Patient as we are we were on the (photo)hunt for the six week old wolf cubs at our local zoo. As you can see they were very busy. Pedro managed to get this shot were one of the cubs is playing tug of war with it’s mother and half a rat.

This little rocker really wouldn’t let go of what he considered his meal for the day.

Of course we took a lot of cute images of the cubs but I won’t bother you with showing to much of them. There are plenty images of the week to come, anyway.
