Kago & Nushka the European Grey Wolf
Date Of Birth: 27/05/2015
Nushka is from Hoenderda in Holland where she was hand raised along with her siblings (who now live at Port Lympne). She was transferred at an age where she had already been weaned, and taking solid foods. She was immediately mixed with our male Kago when she arrived at Howletts. They got on very well together from the offset, and we have had no issues with them so far. Nushka was very approachable for the first few weeks, until it was time to catch her for the first of two vaccinations! She is now unfortunately, quite shy around the Carnivore staff in particular.
Although she does still enjoy the company of anyone not wearing a Howletts uniform apparently! Enrichment has mostly been scent related thus far, to which she shows some interest at times. Kago is from Parc Animalier d’Auvergne, France. Kago was also hand raised at the park where he was born. We continued the hand rearing once he was brought to Howletts. Since being mixed with Nushka, Kago has also become less attached to the keepers. This is perfectly normal, and is a positive early indicator that he has not been greatly affected/imprinted by the hand rearing process. He is asserting dominance at feed times only, and seems to really enjoy Nushkas company. Like Nushka, he shows some signs of interest in scent enrichment.
