The Dhole

Posted on

This little guy is a Dhole, or an Asiatic Wild Dog.. or more precisely the Cuon alpinus. Not your normal house dog. Classified as endangered on the IUCN redlist, there are estimated to be only 4,500 to 10,500 left worldwide. And this is the first time one has wandered into our camera. We found him drinking at this waterhole three times recently – always alone. Which is apparently not too unusual. Hoping he has a family somewhere nearby!
