And aren't their patterns absolutely beautiful?! Now many of us know about domesticated doggies, but what do we know about these wild creatures? Test yourself with this quiz!

5/6 Booyah! But yeah, poor things are endangered. They don't really bark, but squeak. Fascinating animals. Most of their hunts are successful...forgot the ratio though. ^^;;
