Following excessive dominance between Mosi and Mai it was decided it would be better if Mai were moved away from her sister. In order to keep Mai company a new wolf was needed and we chose Motomo, who comes to us from the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.
Motomo is one of a litter of four wolves and unlike the other wolves at the UKWCT he was only hand-reared for the first two weeks of his life. As he's not been with us for long he's still shy and wary, but we've high hopes he'll become more confident over time. One of our largest wolves, he has striking markings and is a most photogenic animal.
