"Wild dogs from Africa"

I found the wild dogs from Pakku fascinating in the sense of there differences. In this case I shot against the light but luckily it was cloudy. I shot this in 2009 with a D200.

Thank you Dave
>Are they ticks on the mouth?
Yes they are ticks indeed. In rural areas it is a common problem with domestic dogs. For some reason it can not be too irritating as it should be very easy to scratch it of.

Nice captures Aart, though there is contrast in physical appendices, the nature & social behaviors of all wild dogs (including Dingos: the one we find in Australia) are same). Thanks for sharing.

Nice colors, dogs must have a good dental hygenist.

Aart, Those wild dogs look strangely friendly which I know isn't true as they are inherently viscous critters! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mark,
I think that although the are ruthless hunters they are not menacing. I once observed a fairly big pack of dogs on one of the roads in the Kruger. They were inquisitive and even sniffed on the vehicle but than to my astonishment a Kudu walked right passed them. Neither the Kudu nor the dogs blinked an eye. If you see the kind playfulness when they are relaxing they are not vicious by nature. Lions, hyena, leopard and even jackal will be much more inclined to attack with very little provocation.

Hi Glen, Thank you. Every hound has his own markings and because it is an endangered species, the markings are used to identify individual animals
