Fun Friday The Letter D: African Wild Dogs

Today for the letter D I'm going to tell you about the African Wild Dog.
The African Wild Dog has many names besides African Wild Dog such as painted dog,painted wolf,and the painted hunting dog.
The African Wild Dog is found in different parts of Africa,such as Tanzania,Botswana,Namibia,Zimbabwe,Ruaha,and Kenya.If you look at it on a map of Africa,it sort of looks like a back words G.
African wild dogs are carnivores which means they eat meat and because they live in packs they hunt in packs too.They've been known to kill impala but they've also been known to kill dangerous prey such as giraffe calves,warthog,African buffalo,large antelope and even the one ton Eland.
African Wild Dogs are endangered in the wild because of human population and bigger predators. There use to be 500,000 left in the wild and there are now only about 5,000 left in the wild ,how sad.That's my report on the African Wild Dog.The End.
