[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the not so commonly seen animals in the krugerpark are the wild dogs,an estimation is that there are around 400 sp left in the park,we were lucky enough to see a pack of 10 on our last day of our visit of the park on the H3 near Afsaal,you can see a movie on my website .

Wid Dogs
Wild dogs are highly co-operative,hunting and breeding in packs up to 40.They chase their prey for several kilometers to the point of exhaustion.The pack is headed by one breeding pair,but other members help to look after and feed the young.

Hope you like it and TFW
