Normal Animals That Walk This Planet
wilddogsofinstagram Black-backed jackals are monogamous and territorial animals, whose social organisation greatly resembles that of golden jackals. However, unlike the latter species, the assistance of elder offspring in helping raise the pups of their parents has a greater bearing on pup survival rates. During the mating season, they become increasingly more vocal and territorial, with dominant animals preventing same-sex subordinates from mating through constant harassment. In southern Africa, mating occurs from late May to August, with a 60-day gestation period. Pups are born from July to October. Summer births are thought to be timed to coincide with population peaks of vlei rats and four-striped grass mice, while winter births are timed for ungulate calving seasons. Litters usually consist of three to six pups. For the first three weeks of their lives, the pups are kept under constant surveillance by their mother, while the father and elder offspring provide food. They typically leave the den after three weeks, and become independent at six to eight months. Pups have drab coloured coats, which only reach full intensity at the age of two years. Unlike golden jackals, which have comparatively amicable intrapack relationships, black-backed jackal pups become increasingly quarrelsome as they age, and establish more rigid dominance hierarchies. Dominant cubs will appropriate food, and become independent at an earlier age. 20h

  •   wilddogsofinstagram Not all wild dogs bark, but some do! Generally, depending on the species of canid each has its own unique and different vocalizations! @juju_bar 20h
  •   juju_bar Oh wait... I think I made a mistake :| is the question referring to wild dogs in general or the african wild dog? :/ 19h
  •   wilddogsofinstagram I meant wild dogs in general, but were you referring to the african wild dogs in your question? If so, they often make sounds by communicating within the pack by making high-pitched vocalizations or squeaks, which sound like a tennis shoe rubbing on a gymnasium floor! If a dog gets lost or separated from the group, it will also make a sound similar to a bell, called a "hoo" call. @juju_bar 19h
  •   steve__mcd Carolina Dogs: wild? We live in Connecticut and have one, and have heard they live in the wild but I wonder why so many come through rescues... Are they bred or found? 17h
  •   steve__mcd Awesome Instagram feed by the way!! 17h
  •   sophiemckenzie @steve__mcd now, they are bred frequently, a decade or two ago they were found mainly in the wild :) I love Carolina dogs :) 17h
  •   wilddogsofinstagram Carolina dogs are something I would describe as free-ranging dogs different from wild dogs such as wolves, african wild dogs, and dholes, but similar to dingoes. They were discovered the 70s (I believe?) living in the swamps of the Southeastern U.S. and can still be found there today, some are now also breeding these dogs as well. Another interesting note I'd thought you might enjoy is that they are also related to the dogs that originated in Southeast Asia such as dingoes, ngsds, pariah dogs, etc and Thank You! :) @steve__mcd 17h

wilddogsofinstagram The Culpeo fox (Lycalopex culpaeus) is an opportunistic predator that will take any variety of prey. This fox mainly feeds on rodents, lagomorphs, and rodents, lagomorphs, and occasionally feed on domestic livestock, and young guanacos. Culpeos are considered beneficial because they are significant predators of the rabbits/hares introduced in 1915; such introduced rabbit populations are believed to have allowed culpeos to spread from the Andean foothills across the Patagonian plain. They sometimes take young lambs a week old and younger. In limited studies, the larger culpeo appears to dominate potential competitors, including South American gray foxes, Pampas cats, grisons and various raptorial birds. Its range also overlaps that of the much larger puma, but the size difference ensures that the two species have limited competition. 20h

  •   mzcappuccinojo Looks more raccoon than dog...odd. 19h
  •   andrea_rousseu @ryanxgx95 is this not just a racoon? 11h
  •   wilddogsofinstagram The raccoon dog is often confused for being a hybrid, but it is not instead being an actual member of the dog family thus making it a canine species, sharing no relation to the raccoon. It's quite weird, but they receive their name due to the raccoon-like features that the animal has. Raccoon dogs also are found mainly in Europe & Asia and are often farmed and killed for their fur. They also live in monogamous pairs with both parents helping to raise their young. Hope this helped! :) @ryanxgx95 @mzcappuccinon8tive @andrea_rousseu 11h
