Dhole with a spotted deer kill After many many trips, i finally get to see an active kill! This spotted deer kill is providing a rolling buffet for a pack of 8 Dhole, each taking it turns to eat and then stand guard!

  1. A truly valuable photo. Outside of Asia, I think few people even know what a dhole is. And here you captured it in full glory, with some core behavior. Superb! Posted 5 years ago

The dhole, also called the Asiatic wild dog or Indian wild dog, is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. It is the only extant member of the genus ''Cuon'', which differs from ''Canis'' by the reduced number of molars and greater number of teats.
