Exhibition on wolves in the Netherlands

This video is called Young Wolves Filmed Using Remote Camera! – Snow Wolf Family And Me – BBC.

Until 31 December 2016, there is an exhibition about wolves in the natural history museum in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The name of the exhibition is De Ware Wolf, The Real Wolf. The exhibition is because, after being extinct in the Netherlands for some 150 years, wolves are coming back now.

I saw the exhibition on 4 July 2016. There is information on wildlife everywhere in the museum, even at unexpected places. In the restaurant, there is a plaque about how giraffes eat. In the toilets, there is information about dung beetles; and about yak dung used as fuel in Tibet. The museum building used to be a technical school building.

The wolf exhibition shows not only wolves, but also their prey animals and information about them. Among them are wood mice. The exhibition points out that if a wolf would eat only wood mice, then it would need 140 of them a day to survive.

The background music of the exhibition is Peter and the Wolf, by Sergei Prokofiev.

We came especially to this museum for another exhibition there, about animals in the art of Hieronymus Bosch. So, stay tuned!
