The original, signed, A3 African painted dog pen drawing, ready to be framed and hung in the perfect spot in your home.
African painted dogs, also known as wild dogs and hunting dogs, are social animals that live in large packs. Each pack has one dominant, monogamous pair and the whole group (of up to 40 dogs!) is like one big family, working together to hunt their prey and sharing the care of pups and sick or wounded members.
To conserve this unique species, which now comprises fewer than 7,000 wild individuals, wildlife organisations are developing protected areas and wildlife corridors between large game reserves. Reducing conflict with humans is another important step; outreach programmes are underway and charities are helping farmers to build painted-dog-proof enclosures for their livestock. The African Wildlife Foundation even employs local people to monitor wild dogs and alert farmers if the dogs pose a threat to their herds!
