MOST RECENT

I’ve only had a few brief glimpses of this canid known as the the Side-striped Jackal of Africa. And I’m hoping one day to be able to actually observe one, two, or hopefully a den for more than a few seconds. They are one of my favorites. Note it’s white-tipped tail!
.
The morning I snapped this photo, I had about 3 seconds to see him and shoot as he stopped briefly, looked at me, then ran away disappearing into the long grass. The sun was just starting to rise and it was mostly still dark. It is still the best look I’ve ever had at one.
.
Unlike their smaller cousins the Black-backed Jackal, which are easy to spot during the day, the Side-striped Jackal is known to be strictly nocturnal. Also, unlike the Black-backed Jackal, which dwells in open plains, the Side-striped Jackal primarily dwells in woodland and scrub areas and avoids open plains.
.
These two factors combined make it a hard animal to see in the Maasai Mara.
.
Fossil remains of the Side-striped Jackal date back to the Pliocene (5 million to 2.5 million years ago).
.
A mDNA sequence alignment for the wolf-like canids gave a phylogenetic tree with the Side-striped Jackal and the Black-backed Jackal being the oldest lineage of this clade, which means that this tree is indicating an African origin for the clade.

We were following a pair of sidestriped jackal on the road to the Biyamiti weir when one jumped into the bush next to the road and then emerged with a snake. Looked like a blind snake which they quickly devoured. #thekill #sidestripedjackal

Going for the kill #sidestripedjackal #kruger

Our second battle today puts the crafty Side Striped Jackal against the beautiful African Wildcat. The African Wildcat looks similar to a domestic cat, but can be identified by the red in their ears.
Both these species can be found around the Satara, Olifants and Letaba regions.

Like for the African Wildcat and Love for the Side Striped Jackal.

Side striped jackal - mostly seen alone and has an owl like hoot. #sidestripedjackal #botswana #wildlifephotography

Disrespectful Jackal. We place out salt blocks for the benefit of wildlife on Shinganda Wildlife Wilderness, with good responses from a range of herbivores, ranging from sable antelope to duikers and also porcupines. It seems that side-striped jackals are particularly attracted to these artificial licks, but for all the wrong reasons, with male jackals lifting their legs and urinating all over them!! #Zambia #kafue #jackal #conservation #wildlifelover #wildlifeaddicts #naturephotograpy #sidestripedjackal #cameratraps #africanwildlife #backtothebush #africanwilderness #justbeingdogs

Every time I draw my little cutie Beeko, I love him more. This time I draw him with my favourite pullover. I also use this pullover for fursuiting him, so it fits him really nice. (IRIE RĒVOLTĒS was my favourite band by the way. I'm so sad that they don't exist anymore)

M.J update from #CareforWild!
Our little jackal pup is continuing to thrive. Coming up to five weeks old, she is putting on weight every day and now weighs 683 grams!
Not only is she growing physically, but her own personality is starting to show too. She is learning the art of play fighting, and loves to jump and climb whenever she gets the opportunity.

We are sure that when she is older and rehabilitated, this little jackal will do very well in the wild. 💚

Side Striped Jackals
are rare to see in the Maasai Mara in Kenya. For all of my trips there during the last eight or nine years I have seen no more than five or six. And when you do see them, they are keep a good distance for they do not seem to enjoy company. On one occasion though, one let us get closer than usual, he having found a carcass I’m sure had something to do with it.
There are two images in this post, swipe to see the second one.

There are three species of jackals in the Serengeti and one may wonder how all three of them coexist. They do this by choosing slightly different habitats. This is a side-striped jackal. The most secretive of the three species, they are found primarily in woodland but do range out onto the grassland occasionally. They can be identified by their white-tipped tail. See the previous two posts for the other two species. #jackal #sidestripedjackal #serengeti #serengetinationalpark
