    He sees the camera... in the slow-mo version you can see him look right at the camera with a slight head turn, before going off screen.

    We had a Colorado white wolf he was huge like this and very gentle weighed 165 pounds and was 7ft long. He was almost solid white. He disappeared from here(Texas) 2 years ago. We now have a female she looks more like this one. She is barely over 2 years old but is now filling out and looking more like a grown wolf. She loves people but will kill another animal in a heartbeat. Wolfey ran free but Luna we can't let her be free or no one would have a pet after she made a pass..No females I should say. She is territorial..
