African Wild Dog

Post by SaritaWolf » Fri Jul 27, 2007 3:22 pm

I love African Wild Dogs; they're really beautiful and so unique, so this will be a topic to talk about them.

Here are some facts:

*Also known as the Cape Hunting Dog or Painted Wolf.
*They live in large packs and have a social hierarchy like wolves do.
*Instead of barking, they chirp
*They're endangered

Feel free to add other facts, 'cause that's all I can think of for now. :oops: Also, look up pictures of African Wild Dogs on google or something and see how pretty they can be!

Yeah, I thought only mods could post new topics. >.< I should've checked first...

I have ZT2 and all the expansion packs. :) I was so happy when I found out African Wild Dogs were going to be in it; it was the first time I had ever seen them in a game.

OMG that happened to me! But what I did whenever the error message popped up while it was downloading I took the cd out and put it back in and it gradually started to install and I couldn't believe it worked.

African Wild Dogs are gorgeous... I've seen pictures of them, but I'd like to see one in real life!
The pack is calling...

Wow, neat facts about the African Wild Dog! Also on a tv channel it's about the Wild Life, I actually saw one on tv, but only a quick glimpse. But I mean really! It was the most beautiful and cutetest creature I've ever seen! 8) I was just thrilled to see one.

But they are many different kinds of wild life creature out in the world! I just love dogs, wolves, and other types of animals! Oh, there's also a tv show on wwxxi, they show it on Sunday about at 6pm or later, it's called Hippo Island and it tells about how creatures live there to survive. They also have hyenas, boy those little guys can sure laugh, they chuckle actually it sounded so weird like a real human was there in the scene laughing itself!

Sorry if I'm going off topic now... :cry:

YEAH, YEAH.

I went to the zoo on the 13th of october for my 14th birthday, and there were African Wild Dogs.

It was so nuts, they ran, all freakin' day. o__o;;

Their tails are amazing, their patterns are so unique. All of them had different things and by the time I finished watching them I could tell them apart.

They had slim legs, beautiful white tails, and pointed black ears, they always ran together and man could they run. Up and down the fence it was so amazing to watch them. :D

A picture I found for youuuu's -
