»Michael Rothman DescriptionThis large work, measuring 48" V. by 72" H. depicts a pack of neotropical Bushdogs (Speothos venaticus) crossing the St. Eloi Creek in French Guiana. They are widespread throughout much of South America in forest and savannah settings but at a very low population density. Bushdogs are Canids but not in genus Canus. They are highly social and share parental responsibilities amongst a close knit group. They have a fair amount of webbing on their forefeet and can hunt on land for prey like agoutis and capybara and underwater for turtles.
