The jackal

Elizabeth Kendall

Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa

Artist's Description

Widely distributed throughout South Africa.
Black backed Jackals occur in most habitats from desert to mountains and prefer drier areas while they tend to avoid marshy areas and wetlands.
Habits: They live in pairs that form long term bonds and establish territories, but more often than not scavenge and hunt alone. They are known for their cunning and also adaptability.
Day or night: Although they are at times also active during the day, they mostly rest up in holes dug by other species such as ant bears (aardvark), as well as other shelters like rock crevices, under bushes etc. They are very active at night and are often seen at dusk and dawn. In areas where they are protected they are also active on cool overcast days, but in areas where they are persecuted by man they tend to be shy and hide away.
