African Wild Dog Adaptations
African Wild Dog Adaptations
African Wild Dogs have many adaptations that domestic dogs do. Some are different. Let's see if you can find the similarities and differences!
Physical Traits
They have very long ears to help them hear their enemies. This also helps them listen to the rest of their pack so they can stay together. These large ears also help to keep them cool in the hot summer months.

The bones on their lower front legs are fused together to prevent breaking their legs while running.
Internal Changes
They have large hearts and lungs that allows them to run fast and for long periods of time.

They have lots of muscle in their legs that help them in jumping as well.
Food Intake
Their premolars are very large to help them eat and break down bones since they are carnivores.

They hunt in groups and use their longevity to make their prey tired before they attack. Their long legs help them acquire their prey.

They have a 70-90% success rate with each hunt.
They have multicolored coats that are asymmetrical which allows them to blend in with their surroundings making it easier to go unnoticed from their prey.
