After a devastating outbreak of rabies, the African wild dog population of Madikwe has made a spectacular recovery. Their litter of nine adorable pups is showing great promise and just generally enjoys showing off.

African wild dogs raise their litters communally under the lead of a single matriarch. Following a hunt the adults will return to the den and regurgitate meat for the pups. This can start a bit of friendly fighting over who gets the tastiest morsels!
