  1. Amazing creatures! I still haven't seen them, despite having visited Africa 3 times. Posted 4 years ago
    1. Their coloring is so interesting. We were glad to come across this small pack, especially since we had watched a National Geographic special on the wild dogs a few months ago. Posted 4 years ago
