They are known for their extraordinary vocals – mostly for alerting pack-mates on dangerous conditions. Dholes are South Asiatic Wild Dogs that live in organized, extended family packs with a strict social hierarchy. Not the typical canine breed, as their range is severely fragmented and is falling under critical concerns. It is estimated that only 2500 Dholes are left in the wild worldwide. In the Wildlife Act of 1972, these little reddish-brown pups were officially declared as endangered due to rampant habitat destruction.
