I found a zoo site that has a good way of describing the Wild Dogs sound. LOL

"The wild dogs owe part of their success to the way they hunt: they work as a group to catch their prey. They communicate within the pack by making high-pitched vocalizations or squeaks, which sound like a tennis shoe rubbing on a gymnasium floor! If a dog gets lost or separated from the group, it makes a sound like a bell called a "hoo" call. They can also signal their pack mates by moving their very large ears to show what direction to go or what to do. African wild dogs do not hunt in the same manner as lions do. Instead, they hunt in a relay form, taking turns running after the prey. The dogs depend on their ability to run for a long time without getting tired so they can outlast their prey. They can run up to 37 miles per hour (60 kilometers per hour) for up to 3 miles (4.8 kilometers). Once a kill is made, the dogs eat quickly before hyenas, lions, and vultures move in."

Sorry Karen, we were enjoying each other today.  Although it was a nice drive.  Way Cool seeing the birds at night!  Birds from today were Walberg Eagle, Woodland Kingfisher and a Francolin.  I couldn't make out which Francolin he said it was.

thanks Aquilla. They dont not sound like a dog at all. Kinda crazy that a baboon sounds more like a dog.

Yeah Sag, they don't sound dog like. If I heard that sound, I'd never think Oh... Wild Dog! LOL I wonder if they have other calls though like the hyenas do?
