African Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus)

This species is considered endangered in Africa, despite having large litters of up to a dozen. They are probably killed as they move into inhabited areas, but anthrax has also been responsible for their decline in numbers. Packs of wild dogs wander continuously never staying long in one place. Living in groups of 10 - 20 they are very efficient hunters using the open plains or savannahs and depend on their excellent eyesight and stamina to run down their prey. They usually take the smaller antelope but packs have been known to take animals as large as the kudu or waterbuck. African wild dogs use their sense of sight, not smell, to find their prey. They pay no attention to wind direction and they do not use cover when approaching their prey. They can run up to 55 km/h for several kilometers. In eastern Africa, they mostly hunt Thomsonís gazelles, but they will also attack calves, warthogs, zebras, impalas, and the young of large antelopes such as the gnu.
