In the bushveld of the Greater Kruger National Park lives a family of one of Africa’s most iconic species, the African wild dog or painted wolf. Highly social creatures, the pack shares all duties including raising their latest litter of over 10 pups. With so many hungry mouths to feed a hunting party must be dispatched twice a day in search of prey. Meanwhile, one adult stays behind as a babysitter to guard the pups against danger. If the hunters are successful, they will consume the carcass as quickly as possible to avoid losing out to scavengers.
