Bonjour Martin,
Gulo gulo c'est un predateur d'un grand resistance, vivacte et agresivite. Il n'est pas tres rare la situation quand il vole la proie de linx, puma, et quellque fois de l'ours. Est-ce que cette foto a ete fait dans un jardin zoologique ou dans la nature? Le nom en langue roumaine est "jderul flamanzila"
en traduction aproximative "La marttre toujour
affame".
A bientot, Dan
