I think Honey Badger is a species with males much larger.

Thanks, Toko

In the KTP species list you find Wild Dogs:

So what about the Wild dogs in KTP:
Is there a resident population?
Has there ever been a resident population?
Are there recent sightings
?

Is there a resident population? NO
Has there ever been a resident population? NO
Are there recent sightings? YES, sometimes Wild dogs from Botswana come in. But I don't know where from, may be from the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. I think there is no resident population on the Bots side of KTP.

:thumbs_up: Interesting question
