The African Wild Dog is an endangered wild dog found in sub Saharan Africa.
The African Wild Dog is a highly social animal that lives in packs of six to twenty members.
It is an opportunistic feeder, meaning that it hunts down what it can catch at any time.
It has one of the highest kill rates per chase for any land predator and also takes large numbers of impala when they are available. It generally hunts when the moon is out but after a successful hunt when food is scarce they will continue hunting during the day.
The African Wild Dog has a coat of coarse fur with bushy eyebrows, pointed ears and strong legs. The coat is yellow-orange in color with black patches on the face. They look very similar to the side-striped jackal except they are significantly larger in size (almost twice as large), have longer legs and their tails end in a white tip (the Jackal's tail is all black).
