An adult dhole can eat up to 4 kilograms, or 8.8 pounds, of meat in one hour.

The dhole eats wild berries, insects, and lizards. Packs of dholes feast on mammals ranging from rodents to deer. Some of the dhole’s favorites include wild pigs, hares, wild goats, sheep, and occasionally a monkey. The majority of the dhole’s prey base consist of deer and other hoofed animals.

Dholes feed in order of dominance to avoid conflicts. They compete for food, not by fighting, but by how fast they can eat. An adult dhole can eat up to 4 kilograms, or 8.8 pounds, of meat in one hour.
