Cuon – Dhole
Extinct in Europe and North America probably due to landscape changes during the ice age and currently can only be found in Asia
Dholes are canids that are closely related to dogs and wolves. Their fur is dense and thick, ranging 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 mostly 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.
