There has been considerable discussion of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) as predators, most commonly of red colobus monkeys (Procolobus spp.). Far more infrequent are published descriptions of chimpanzees as prey. The paucity of direct observations of chimpanzee-predator encounters is an obstacle in situating chimpanzees in both predator and prey roles. For the first time, we describe an observation of an encounter between African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) and a chimpanzee in the Issa Valley, Tanzania, one of the driest and most open chimpanzee habitats. Whilst the initiation of the encounter was missed, here we nonetheless interpret the data that we did record. Our observations of behavior in both parties suggest the possibility of an investigatory rather than predatory encounter on the part of the wild dogs.
