Dhole or Asiatic Wild Dog – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Dhole:

The Dhole, also called the Indian or Asiatic Wild Dog, is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. It is the only extant member of the genus Cuon. These dogs are considered endangered by the IUCN, due to ongoing habitat loss, depletion of its prey base, competition from other predators, persecution and possibly diseases from domestic and feral dogs. Like most other wild dogs, Dholes are highly social animals, living in large packs which occasionally split up into smaller ones to hunt for food. It primarily preys on medium-sized ungulates, which it hunts by tiring them out in long chases and killing them when they are too tired to run anymore. Unlike most social canids (but similar to African wild dogs), dholes let their pups eat first at a kill. Though fearful of humans, dhole packs are bold enough to attack large and dangerous animals such as wild boar, water buffalo, and there are even accounts of them attacking tigers.
