Asiatic Wild Dog
Whistle calls are used in the wild to re-assemble the pack when hunting or traveling in the forest.
The Asiatic wild dog (Cuon alpinus), also known as the dhole, is a species of wild dog native to South and Southeast Asia.
Unlike other wild dogs, the dhole has fewer postcarnassial molars and more teats, which makes them classified in their own genus, Cuon. Unlike other dogs, the dhole is more closely related to the jackal than the wolf.
Dholes are rather small, and about the size of a medium dog. Their coats vary from red, to yellow and gray with a bushy tail; this variation is dependent on their distribution in the wild. (Click here to learn about dhole variation based on location.) All dhole have a characteristic white underbelly, and pointed round ears.
What does that mean?
Postcarnassial molars: smaller molars, typically used for grinding food, that follow the carnassial molars, large teeth found in many meat-eating mammals that are used for shearing flesh and bone in a scissor-like way.
Distribution: the manner in which a biological order is spatially arranged in an environment.
Ungulates: several groups of mammals that have hoofed feet.
