The African Wild Dog (also called Painted Wolf) is a canid found only in Africa. This pack seemed to linger just to entertain us – licking each other, playing, and marking their territory, while always keeping a sharp lookout. Our cameras were in high-gear as they posed. Their bulging bellies and blood-stained faces confirmed their recent meal – perhaps that is why they seemed so gleeful. By Doug Cheeseman in Chobe National Park, August 2008.
