The African Hunting Dog, also called African Wild or Painted Dog, is the largest wild dog species in Africa.
It is native mainly to sub-Saharan Africa and hunts in packs.
Both male and female African Hunting Dogs have a tri-coloured coat of black, white and golden brown in jumbled patterns
with most of the white on the limbs and chest.
They hunt as a pack and have a high hunting success rate for a range of large and small prey. The packs have one dominant,
monogamous pair and a hierarchical social structure. Members of the hunting pack will regurgitate food for pups, elderly,
infirm and mothers who have stayed with pups at their den.
