I can only imagine the excitement! If both females gave birth, how do they decide which becomes the alpha? Does the research she any light on that process? Here’s hoping they all make it to adulthood to increase their numbers! 🤞

What an amazing sighting. They are so special to see.

The huge amount of wild dog puppies is incredible! How do they make sure each pup gets something to eat? It looks like chaos and first come first served. They all look fat and healthy. It must have been exciting to see them so close and running around the vehicle. Thank you for great video and pictures.

Great post Barry! We were so close, but missed it. It’s amazing that there are so many pups at the same time! Is that normal? How many pups does a normal female deliver??

Hi Barry and Tshepo, that was really an unforgettable and unbelievable morning drive, seeing all these pups and their vitality. They were always on the go. So great!.

Seeing all of the wild dog pups is amazing. Hopefully, I will see them in person in May. Looking forward to being back at Londolozi.

They could NOT be cuter!!! I think we chose our pup because his ears reminded us of wild dogs! Love them! So happy they are all thriving!

Barry it is fantastic to see these 19 pups all together running around the Land Rovers. Each one has its own unique color coats and personality. Let’s hold thumbs that all 19 will make it to adulthood. Such a privilege to see puppies and watch the video’s of them running sound in their own environment.

Barry, fabulous video of the wild dog pups. Thanks for sharing.

What a thrilling sight to see all of those puppies for all of you! Who knows what will happen in future weeks, months but with skill and luck, if even half of these pups survive, it strengthens the Othawa pack immensely. Thanks for this installment Barry!!
