Máni was born in 2017 to Timber and Wotan. He was named after the Germanic moon god, which connected him with his father, who was also named after a Germanic deity.
Máni was a late-bloomer among the puppies. For most of his first summer, he was just one of the crowd, and did little to stand out. Autumn brought changes to Máni, who suddenly became the biggest pup in the pack, and proved to have the confidence to tower over his brothers. He still is something of a lazy pup. If he can convince humans to toss him treats while he lies quietly, he’ll do it. When he does engage in training games, he is very smart and quick to pick up new things.
Like Aspen, he’s fond of the park’s rowboat and likes to take rides when the photographers are out on the lake. He’s relatively calm regarding tours and visitors. He’s frequently the wolf standing by the fence checking out the new people. He also often escorts tours around the enclosure edge.
