Wild dogs are the most successful predators in Africa. If animals such as lions and hyenas have a successful hunting rate of more than 20%, they are called adept hunters, then with a rate of up to 80%, wild dogs should be called elite. master of the skilled hunters.
The factor that makes the success of the wild dog is thanks to the combination of excellent individuals to form a strong team. Wild dogs are pack animals with high social organization and full of discipline. They usually hunt in groups of about 6-20. With skill, endurance and the ability to accelerate unexpectedly quickly from each individual in the group, when combined, they will form an extremely scary hunting collective.
Looking at the above statistics, it can be seen that wild dogs are an extremely violent hunting organization, just a glimpse from afar is enough to frighten all species. In the clip recorded in Kruger National Park, South Africa below, the wild dogs will encounter a worthy opponent, can they continue to roam?
According to the filming crew, the afternoon before filming, the crew accidentally caught a pack of wild dogs hunting. After observing for a while, impressed by the 3 prey the wild dogs had collected, the crew decided to mark them so that they could continue filming them tomorrow.
The next morning, it only took a little time for the group to find the good fighting dogs and the results were not up to everyone’s efforts.
Still continuing to search for prey in large numbers, suddenly when coming to a trail, a pack of wild dogs of more than a dozen encountered an equally large group of monkey-faced monkeys. What happened next was quite unexpected, the dogs had a reputation for being a powerful predator, but when a baboon came to threaten one shot, they had to run away.
Being encroached on, the baboon became more and more aggressive, chasing the dogs and running deep into the forest. After the panic passed, the wild dogs calmed down to show their bravery. Gathering the individuals into a large group, the dogs aggressively approached to defeat the monkeys. At this point the aggressive monkey had turned around and was about to scare the wild dogs again. However, the monkey’s trick “intimidating ghosts” seems to have no effect, the dogs have regained their composure so they are no longer panicking like before.
The joke was no longer funny, the monkey looked bored, crouched down on the street, ignoring the wild dogs growling behind. At this point, the dogs didn’t want to waste any more time here, so the safe way was to leave.
Animal experts say that although wild dogs are extremely hunters, they still have to fear aggressive baboons and tend to avoid when they accidentally confront them. Only in the case of running out of food and being too hungry, and a young monkey straying from the pack, would the dogs dare to go hunting for baboons.
