Wild Dog on the Road



Wild dog (Lycaon pictus) captured on camera as he sits on the side of the road during the early morning. The pack appeared to have had a successful hunt and were contemplating where to lie up for the rest of the day. The pack soon moved off to a nearby shady river line and remained there until the late afternoon. Wild dog are known to hunt twice a day, enjoying breakfast and dinner on occasions and they are considered the more efficient hunter of the Africa carnivores, perhaps second only to the cheetah.
