In A Lonely Place by Mouselemur In A Lonely Place by Mouselemur
When: June 5, 2018
Where: Zie-ZOO Volkel, The Netherlands

Look at this pretty pup :love: They absolutely love grass, sticks and sand - and so close to lunch time, you'll find they're a bit too eager to munch on anything.
They'll run around like crazy, and it's no surprise that some might foam a little at the mouth. Also, the summer time with the hot weather makes them feel exerted a bit quicker than ordinary.

Species: Ussuri or Chinese Dhole (Aziatische wilde of rode hond)

Latin name: Cuon Alpinus Alpinus

Originates from East Asia.

Current status: Endangered

Did you know:

…They’re also called Asiatic Wild Dog, Indian Wild Dog, Whistling Dog, Red Dog and Mountain Wolf. This specific Ussuri or Chinese Dhole, is also known as the Eastern Asiatic Dhole.

…Known to make a whistling sound resembling that of Red Foxes, sometimes rendered as coo-coo, it is unknown how they produce the sound but it is thought it coordinates the clan when traveling through thick brush.

…Dholes are highly social animals, and live in large clans withour rigid dominance hierarchies, containing multiple breeding females. These clans usually consist of 12 individuals, but clans of 40 are also known.

…They are able to jump 7 ft/ 2 meters straight up into the air.

…They suffer many threats to their survival in the wild, such as habitat loss, loss of prey, competition with other species, persecution due to livestock predation, but also disease transfer from domestic dogs. Their numbers are estimated at lower than 2,500 individuals and decreasing.
