painted dogs

although
 toonman insisted
 these were hyenas
 he was wrong
 i told him
 you're wrong they are painted dogs
 he said
 they look like hyenas

 well maybe
 but
 no 
they are not

  they are
 painted dogs aka african wild dogs

 these are 2 of a litter of 6 
only a few months old 
they live with their parents
 in a large habitat 
with
 lots of room
 to
 run
 wrestle
 play
 and
 be seen
 at 
the cincinnati zoo 



if you'd like to know more about them here's a link
