More catching up and more animals (of course). We have a wonderful exhibit of African wild dogs at the Bronx Zoo. Some of the smartest and most effective hunters - and one of the most altrusistic species - these gorgeous animals are also known as Cape hunting dogs and - wait for it - painted dogs.

This is pretty boring as photos go, but it's a great illustration of why they're called painted dogs. No two dogs have the same markings, but they all have white-tipped tails.
