Hello Paul,
This is the strangest dog I have seen in my life. It doesn't seem very friendly. Its fur is really weird with so unusual pattern. Are you sure it is not a mix between a hyena, a cow and a dog, lol? This is a very good capture. It must have been an impressive encounter. Thanks,

Ha Paul,

Je hebt echt geluk gehad met deze wilde hond. Ze zijn ongelooflijk zeldzaam. Ik heb meer dan 50 gamedrives gemaakt in het Krugerpark en nooit een wilde hond gezien. Zo te zien kon je erg dichtbij komen. Indrukwekkende plaat!


What an odd looking animal. Its legs are so long and markings so unusual. It looks like your were a little close to a snarling wild dog that looks a tad bit underfed. And you say there was a pack of them. hmmmm

Thanks for sharing a good image of an unusual subject.

Hello Paul,
His dentist would be proud of his big white teeth. Looks as if he's sneezing, great details and colors shows this species off very well.

This is a really clear shot of this painted dog, Paul.
He is beautiful. I love his markings.
Judging by his bared teeth, I think he is not happy to have to share the road.
TFS this amazing animal.
