Black backed jackel

Canis mesomelas


small canid of Africa - hunts small game ans scavenges kills of larger animals, including lions




I've seen many of them. Best photo series I've gotten to date. This guy seemed so unconcerned, even as he was leaving(he did stop to scratch near the end of the series - then rocketed off)
