African Wild Dog

African Wild Dog

African wild dogs cooperate in caring for young, wounded, and sick pack members and will regurgitate hunted food for them.

African wild dogs cooperate in caring for the young, as well as wounded or sick pack members.

When the dogs return from a kill they feed regurgitated food to the young, wounded, and sick, as well as any adult that was not able to go on the hunt.
