Wild Dog Pups in the Southern Serengeti

Jul 28 2014 Written by:Rob Barbour

This week I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of six, 1 month old wild dogs. We spotted the pups in a pack of 12 adult dogs at a den not far from Ndutu.

The Alpha female is the mother but the rest of the pack takes responsibility for feeding the puppies. The adults hunt and feed the pups their regurgitated meat to help the pups mature.

It was a great day as we came across a male cheetah on the way home who unsuccessfully attempted to hunt some Grant’s Gazelle. More updates to come soon!
