Why do wild dogs regurgitate their food?

A nuclear pack of about six dogs usually consists of one dominant breeding pair and several non-breeding adult male helpers.

The hunting members of a pack return to den where they regurgitate meat for the nursing female and her pups.

Did you know:

  • No two wild dogs are marked exactly the same, making it easy to identify different individuals. Why such a pattern should develop, and how it serves the hunting dog, has long intrigued scientists.
  • Wild dogs are usually on the move over a very large range, covering for example, some 900 square miles in the Serengeti. After a litter is born, however, they will limit their travelling and hunting to areas closer to the den.
