This month I’ve featured African painted wild dogs for my In Touch with Nature post. They are highly endangered so seeing them in the wild during our January bush trip was a real treat. They have very large and interesting bat-like ears which enable them to hear very well.

Thanks for hosting, Kaye Lynne Booth.

    Thanks for sharing, Patty

    1. My pleasure I very much enjoyed reading that. I always knew sneezing was a way dogs were communicating. I never knew what any sneezes might mean. Now I have something to start with. Even though these are wild dogs. This fascinates me. The whole thing fascinated me.

        I am pleased you found the information interesting, and possibly, applicable.

        1. Hi, Robbie.
          I found many things in the article interesting.
          I love learning about all sorts of dogs. Wild or domesticated. I’m interested in the ways in which they communicate with one another so when I read that bit about the sneezes, it did capture me for a minute.
          I also think it’s important to know what animals are endangered. I don’t believe the public at large understands what it does to the balance of things when species of animals or plants are suddenly removed from the system so to speak.
          It is important to spread that information.
