File:Postcranial skeleton of a wild dog.jpg

Description Lycaon sekowei. This is the almost complete postcranial skeleton of a wild dog which may represent the oldest evidence of wild dogs in South Africa. It is a large animal, approximately the size of a modern North American wolf. It shows interesting transitional features between regular canids (dogs) and the Cape Hunting Dog (Lycaon sp.) It has so far only been recovered from Gladysvale, one of the fossil sites in the Cradle of Humankind, and is estimated to be just less than 1-million years old.

Schools Wikipedia was launched to make learning available to everyone. SOS Children's Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Would you like to sponsor a child?
