Black Backed Jackal
Location
Kruger SA
Scientific name
Canis Mesomelas
Perfect capture - early morning (or evening?) light gives a great back light.

(If it wasn’t for the enormous ears and really bushy tail it would look like a domestic dog! 🙂)
 
An excellent shot of this young jackal Helen, enhanced by the golden hour light. Something is really holding her attention.

What a handsome beastie that is Helen.

Many thanks for showing us this jackal, not sure I remember seeing one come in before.
