Wildlife Wednesday – African Painted Dogs

African painted dogs at Kilimanjaro Safari

Painted dogs are large pack animals native to Sub-Saharan Africa. They have long legs, large ears and beautiful mottled coats. They prey largely on antelope.

You can find these gorgeous canids on the Kilimanjaro Safari. They share a spot on the savanna with hyenas so you may have to journey out more than once to catch them “at home.”

Conservation status – Endangered
Habitat – Sub-Saharan Africa
