Wild Dogs

26 August 2011

One of the most exciting mammals to view in the bush, the Wild Dogs are difficult to keep up with when they are on the move. The young dogs start to hunt when they are about 12 months old, but only become expert hunters when they are 18 months old. A single dog can kill up to an Impala, but for larger prey they (e.g. Wildebeest, Zebra and Giraffe) they need to hunt co-operatively. Wild Dogs can Chase at speeds of up 60km per hour.
