Aardwolves occur throughout eastern and southern Africa, except in the south along the coast. These secretive and usually solitary carnivores have a wide habitat tolerance with a preference for semi-arid, open plains, savannahs, and grasslands where it lives in burrows in the ground. They eat termites.
The hyena is Africa’s most common large carnivore. There are three hyena species — spotted, brown, and striped. They live in a large variety of habitats, from savannahs, woodlands and semi-desert to low mountains.
The wild dog is one of the world’s most endangered mammals. The largest populations remain in southern Africa and the southern part of East Africa. They are social and gather in packs of around ten individuals, but some packs number more than 40. They are opportunistic predators that hunt medium-sized ruminants, such as gazelles.
