African Wild Dog

African Wild Dog

African wild dogs are not aggressive except for occasional fights between a dominant female and a subordinate female over breeding rights.

Another unique feature of African wild dogs is the general lack of aggression between pack members. An exception to this is the occasional fight between a dominant female and a subordinate female over breeding rights.
