African Painted Dogs are an endangered species. They look similar to hyenas but are very different. Hyenas aren't actually canines. They are closely related to the mongoose family & far more aggresive.

African wild dogs: They form packs up to 40 members, each with a dominant breeding pair, that remain monogamous for life. They're co-operative hunters, relying on sight rather than smell to pinpoint prey. They reach speeds up to 55 kmph, and sometimes disembowel prey while it is still running. -BBC Nature
