Liam Finds a Wild Dog Den
Posted by Liam Rainier
Apex field leader Liam Rainier spent a few weeks monitoring a large termite mound that he believed to be the den site of a pack of African Wild Dogs. He was almost certain there were puppies inside the termite mound. A telltale sign is when the dogs return from hunting and regurgitate for the members of the pack that stay behind with the pups.
He had very recently seen the pack with a female that was heavily pregnant, so if there were puppies inside the termite mound, they would be less than a week old. Cautiously, Liam waited and watched for signs of the Wild Dog puppies. It was certainly worth the wait!
