The Black-backed Jackal is my favourite jackal. Probably because it was the first one we saw in 2013?

Interesting facts:

- The side-striped jackal is the least aggressive while the most aggressive one is this black-backed jackal.

- Fossil deposits have revealed that the black-backed jackal is one of the oldest known dog species. It has remained pretty much unchanged since the Pleistocene epoch, up to 2.5 million years ago.
