African Wild Dog

Status: Endangered
Population trend: Decreasing

~*~*~

"The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), also known as African hunting dog or painted wolf, is a canid native to Sub-Saharan Africa. This species is a highly social animal, living in packs with separate dominance hierarchies for males and females. African Wild Dogs have disappeared from much of their former range. Their population is currently estimated at approximately 6,600 adults in 39 subpopulations, of which only 1,400 are mature individuals. Population size is continuing to decline as a result of ongoing habitat fragmentation, conflict with human activities, and infectious disease."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober to endangered, enslaved or extinct animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters.
