The African wild dog is related to foxes and wolves, but it is its own species. With its long legs, huge, saucershaped ears, and distinctive spotted coat, the African wild dog is one of Africas most amazing and beautiful animals. Unfortunately, it is also one of Africas rarer animals, with numbers of existing dogs hovering somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 animals in all of Africa. This engaging and informative book, lavishly illustrated with photographs of the wild dogs, offers a window into the lives and times of this fascinating canid.
