From our friends at Mongabay: African wild dogs are neither wolves nor dogs, even though they belong to the Canidae family. In fact, they have their own genus. Their biggest populations are in the open plains and sparse woodland of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique.
Special thanks to the Peter Apps/Botswana Predator Conservation for sharing this footage with us. Every episode, Mongabay will bring you a new animal caught on Candid Animal Cam, so subscribe and hit the bell icon to make sure you never miss a camera trap video again!
And shout out to our writer and biologist Romi Castagnino, who hosted, produced and shot this video!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
