African Wild Dog

The Painted Wolf or African wild dog is a canid species native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is the largest indigenous canid in Africa, and is distinguished from domestic dogs by their highly specialised teeth and hypercarnivorous diet.

It was classified as endangered by the IUCN in 2016, as it had disappeared from much of its original range.
