The African hunting dog's scientific name Lycaon pictus, means painted or ornate wolf. African hunting dogs tend to prey on medium sized mammals that are about twice their weight. Lycaon pictus are gregarious animals that form packs of up to 40 members. Before the recent population decline of African hunting dogs, packs of up to 100 animals had been recorded.
