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.
