The youngest Wild Dog puppies of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park!
Finding a pack of Wild Dogs (Lycaon pictus) (also known as African painted dogs) is already something incredible, but finding the pack with the seven youngest puppies of the whole Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park (HiP) and spending more than a hour with them, that is awesome!
Conservation volunteers Violette Castadot, Beinta Thomsen and Ingrid Erlandsen, along with iMfolozi monitor Antoine Marchal, took as many pictures as possible in order to create a new ID kit for the new puppies. Here are the seven right hand side-shots of the puppies to which we have to give names. The naming rule in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is to follow the same theme for the same litter.
