  African Wild Dogs
by BorneoGrrl
 
 

I was fortunate to spot this rare animal as I was leaving for Nairobi from our lodge. We were on the dirt road and suddenly a pack of African Wild Dogs or commonly known as the Hunting Dogs appeared from the bushes and walked past us. They have large bat-like ears and a bushy tail with a big white patch. My guide told me that they are vicious but actually they are intelligent creatures that hunt the sick & weak animals
