Lycaon sekowei is an extinct species of canid from southern Africa that lived during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. Like the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), the other species in the genus that is alive today, Lycaon sekowei was a hypercarnivore; however, its front paws were not as specialized for running. It most likely lived in medium to large packs and/or family groups that hunted the Large game.
