The Painted Wolf
This is one of my personal favourites, as I have a soft spot for African Wild dogs. We were completely taken by surprise (while on safari in the Kruger National Park recently), when a friend & I came across a wild dog pack, fast asleep in the heat of the afternoon. It was our most exciting sighting & a rare treat, as Wild dogs are nomadic creatures & difficult to find in a very large game reserve! They're extremely intelligent & highly social animals within their packs. Sadly, the African Wild Dog is listed as endangered, hence the dark, almost melancholy tone to background of this painting. Wild Dogs are threatened by loss of habitat & infectious diseases, which can wipe out an entire pack. This particular young, male dog had injured his back leg - which he kept slightly raised - but it has since healed, & I have it on good authority that he is now thriving in a pack of 21 dogs, in Singita, South Africa.
