Jackal, black backed

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.
