Dholes are canids that are closely related to dogs and wolves. Their fur is dense and thick, and the color ranges from greyish-brown to dark reddish-brown to pale golden-yellow. The throat, chest, belly, insides of their legs, and paws are white or paler shades. They also have a pair of amber-colored eyes. Their bushy tail has a darker color tip, which is primarily black.
They are cooperative group hunters that primarily hunt in the early morning hours and rarely hunt at night except on a moonlit night. This habit gives an insight that they greatly rely on the sense of sight when hunting. They also look after the young as a group.
