A large family of wild dogs lying on a dust road in Chobe NP close to Ihaha Camp at the end of the day. Painted Dogs live in big familiys that care for each other  even if one dog is injured, and they are by far the most effective hunters – nearly 90 percent of their chases are successful, and they achieve this by a perfect choreography during the hunt. The young dogs are learning to hunt by bothering each other whenever there is a chance.
