African Wild Dog

The African wild dog is a highly social animal, living in packs with separate dominance hierarchies for males and females. The species is on the brink of extinction with the IUCN estimating that there are only about 3,000 to 5,500 African wild dogs remaining in the wild today. Populations of the African wild dog are threatened by human encroachment of their natural habitat and the effects of communicable diseases from contact with domestic dogs.
