hunting and habitat

The African wild dog hunts in groups of 15 to 60 or more and is found in parts of Africa south and east of the Sahara, especially in the grasslands. They usually feed on antelopes and some large game but are hunted and killed in settled areas due to the occasional damage to domestic livestock. The average number of young in a litter that gives birth to wild dogs appears to be about six; Gestational periods of about 60 and 80 days are observed.
