Artist's Description

Young Black-Backed Jackal. Taken in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

The Black-backed Jackal (Canis mesomelas), also known as the Silver-backed Jackal is a species of jackal which inhabits two areas of the African continent separated by roughly 900 kilometers. One region includes the southern-most tip of the continent including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. The other area is along the eastern coastline, including Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, and Ethiopia.

The fossil record indicates that the Black-backed Jackal is the oldest living member of the genus Canis.(Wikipedia)
