#DoggyBlog #Poop4U

African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) are known for their unique hunting style, often referred to as 'exhaustive predation', in which they chase their prey to exhaustion, rather than hunting using speed, strength, or stealth. They are also unique among the dog clade in having only four full digits on their front paws. Until recently, it was unclear how these unique behavioral and anatomical features would affect their forelimb morphology.
