Splotchy coat

Lycaon pictus (Latin for “painted wolf”) is an apt name for the African Wild Dog. Their fur is mottled in shades of tan, brown, black, and white. They have dark circles around their eyes. The ends of the African wild dogs' tails are mostly white--kind of reminds me of flags.

Here’s an amazing video featuring a pack of African wild dogs. Make sure you watch all the way through to the end.

Incredible, huh?
