I've been busy the past few days, so this post is brief.  To kick off the week, I considered offering up a familiar mammal, something like the domestic dog...

 Figure 1: Not an African Wild Dog (way too lazy).

...but instead decided to go with something slightly more exotic.  So instead, here's Lycaon pictus (aka the African wild dog, African painted dog, cape hunting dog, etc.)  Below are a couple of photos taken at the Denver Zoo in late summer, 2009.  You can read more about African Wild Dogs here, here, here or by following the links listed here.
