[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The dhole is a highly social animal, living in large clans which occasionally split up into small packs to hunt. It primarily preys on medium-sized ungulates, which it hunts by tiring them out in long chases, and kills by disemboweling them. Unlike most social canids (but similar to African wild dogs), dholes let their pups eat first at a kill. Though fearful of humans, dhole packs are bold enough to attack large and dangerous animals such as wild boar, water buffalo, and even tigers. {Wikipedia}

Hello Babujayan,
It's the first time I see this species. I find the gaze a bit worrying! It's a good picture but it would be better if the second animal in the background was not cut. Please another try!
Philippe.
