Wild Africa

By darknatasha
I just wish African wild dogs were more popular. They are such beautiful animals and extraordinary hunters. One of my favorite canid that has fascinated me for years.

The face, the ears, the spots on her fur...
Very beautiful! It's a shame that only a few wild dogs left in Africa.

I love African Painted Dogs and always have :3 they are just as beautiful, if not more, than wolves. I think their lack of popularity has to do with lack of public exposure. Wolves are (and used to be) all over the Northern Hemisphere. The Egyptian Jackal, through genetic research, shows evidence of being a relative to the Grey Wolf, closer to wolves than jackals. Wolves are in lots of places, while this beautiful animal with giant round ears is not. Even coyotes are in popular media. Same problem with other handsome canids and definitely beautiful felines like the Civic cat and even tigers and leopards.

I agree. How about bush dog? They are an extremely interesting canid species found in Central and South America,it's a shame it isn't so popular :( Other canids like dholes,ethipoian wolves etc. deserve more popularity but i have to admit that one of my favourite canids is racoon dog *_*

I also like the Maned Wolf, which isn't actually a wolf. They have ridiculously long legs and I love it lol I like dholes and Ethiopian wolves too.
