Jackals – the opportunists of the bush

Oh how we love them. Imagine sitting by the campfire at night and suddenly you are surrounded by howling sounds. A family of jackals meeting up to go out and scavenge for food. These little creatures are very intelligent, curious and come with a natural cheek.

They look a bit like a mixture of fox and dog. The way they run along reminds me of a little mischievous teenage boy.
