Jackal, black backed
Date spotted: February 2012
Place first seen: Ihaha, Chobe, Botswana
In Sossusvlei, Namibia we put out a tin cup of water near where we were sitting and a black backed jackal came to drink from it. It must have been very thirsty to risk coming so close to us as they run away at the earliest sign of people.
Almost always seen in pairs.
