Mala Mala Game Reserve, South Africa
This African Wild Dog puppy was one of six we saw at their den site. They were about six weeks old, and playing with sticks, leaves, rolling on each other, biting tails and anything else that looked like fun. This one was particularly inquisitive, and had walked right up to our vehicle to see what we were. Just after this shot was taken, he was reprimanded by one of the adult dogs who were supervising the pups while the rest of the pack was away from the den.
