Howling Jackal

Howling Jackal

We were driving along the Auob road in the Kgalagadi Park when we saw an object in the road ahead of us. When we got to there it turned out to be a black-backed jackal.

He was calling for his mates and proceeded to howl for about fifteen minutes! We ended up with photographs of him howling from all angles.

Eventually two other jackals arrived and they proceeded to chase each other down the road and into the dunes.

Super picture!

Often pictures of jackals are of them just sitting or running - this one is so different.
