LEARN WHAT A JACKAL IS
Jackals are medium-sized omnivorous mammals of the subtribe Canina, which also includes wolves and the domestic dog, among other species.
They look like a cross between a German shepherd and a fox. They have the fox’s small face, delicate legs and fluffy tail, with the German shepherd’s long, alert ears
Jackals are native to Southeastern Europe, Asia, and Africa.
There are three species of jackals: Golden jackal, Side-striped jackal and Black-backed jackal.
The golden jackal lives in open savannas, deserts, and arid grasslands. Side-striped jackals are found in moist savannas, marshes, bushlands, and mountains. The black-backed—also called sliver-backed—jackal lives primarily in savannas and woodlands.
Jackals have a lifespan of between 8 and 10 years in the wild and up to 16 years in captivity.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
Jackals vary in size and color depending on species, however, they generally measure 38 – 51 centimeters (15 – 20 inches) high at the shoulder, have a body length of 70 – 86 centimeters (27 – 34 inches) and weigh between 7 – 16 kilograms (15 – 35 pounds).
