BBC One’s latest mini-series, Serengeti, aired its first episode earlier this month. Each episode follows the lives and intertwined stories of several animals that call these plains home while showcasing the intense drama and action that accompanies the area’s distinctive wildlife.
In the latest episode, Jasari and his wild dog family came under siege from Zalika and her hyena clan, so they must train their pups to fight back if they are going to survive. The black-maned male lions return and kill two cubs from Zalika’s clan, but this is just the start of their murderous campaign.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite facts about the wild dog to share with you and will be sharing more about the other characters in BBC One’s Serengeti series in the coming weeks as the episodes are premiered.
