The African Wild Dog or African Painted Dog (Lycaon pictus) is an endangered canid native to Sub-Saharan Africa.They are highly social animals, living in packs with separate dominance hierarchies for males and females. Uniquely among social carnivores, it is the females rather than the males that disperse from the natal pack once sexually mature, and the young are allowed to feed first on carcasses.
African wild dogs: They form packs up to 40 members, each with a dominant breeding pair, that remain monogamous for life. They're co-operative hunters, relying on sight rather than smell to pinpoint prey. They reach speeds up to 55 kmph, and sometimes disembowel prey while it is still running. -BBC Nature
