Lycaon pictus -Still endangered
The Wild or Painted Dogs of Africa where once in a very precarious position but their future is looking more encouraging. In Tanznia they have breeding facilities in some of the parks and have been releasing them. They are not looked upon a vermin but are beng recongnized as part of the ecosystem. It has been a predator I always wanted to see. One safari to Tanzania had a visit to a breeding facility and that was what drew me to sign up.
