Black-backed Jackal Pup in the Kgalagadi

A young, curious, Black-backed Jackal cautiously approaches. Inquisitive and very playful, the jackal pups often spend the day playing outside their den site while the adults are off hunting.

In the Kgalagadi, there are often den sites close to the road and once you have located one it is worth spending some time observing the bevaviour of the Jackals.

Technical Details

Photo Tip:
Young animals are often very curious and less inhibited than the adults. If you are patient, often they will come quite close especially if you are close to their den site.
