Painted Dog Species Gallery

Curious about these amazing animals? We’ve put together a gallery of images of painted dogs playing, stalking and just hanging out with the pack! You can really see why people call them painted dogs when you look at the incredible markings on their coats. These markings help them to be camouflaged so that they can get close to prey animals without being spotted, and stay hidden from predators like lions and hyenas, take a look at the gallery and see for yourself!

Snow Leopard Species Gallery

Snow leopards are very tricky to spot in their mountain habitat due to their incredible camouflage, luckily we have rounded up these photos which make it a lot easier for you to see these beautiful big cats!
