Wild Dogs at Play

Photo Details: Young wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) at play, Mashatu Game Reserve, Tuli Block, Botswana.

Camera: Canon EOS 400D (Canon Rebel XS 10.1MP); Lens: Canon EOS 80-200 F2.8 zoom; Focal Length: 125mm; Shutter speed: 1/800; Aperture: f2.8; ISO: 400.

Additional Info: The social system of the African wild dog is based totally on co-operation, from hunting as a pack to helping feed the alpha female’s pups. After many years of persecution by people, wild dogs are now critically endangered. Fortunately they are extremely efficient hunters, with a high success rate.

You can find out more about wild dogs, their social behavior and hunting techniques, in these two articles by safari guide Roddy Smith: Wild Dog Society – All About Co-Operation and Wild Dogs – Efficient Hunters that Kill to Eat
