Ares and Gordo are now living together in their enclosure.

Zoo Barcelona


The wolf Gordo came to Barcelona Zoo from Parc Zoologique de Paris last May under recommendation from the Iberian wolf (Canis lupus signatus) European breeding programme (EEP) coordinator.



Now that the adaptation and association stages have been successfully completed, visitors can see the couple together in their enclosure at Barcelona Zoo.


A good time to observe these animals and watch their behaviour is at feeding time.

For the wolves, we tie the pieces of meat together to prolong their eating time, as would happen in nature, and to encourage them to exercise and strengthen their muscles.
