Definitely not the best of pics, light was terrible, but then again I have always struggled to get a half decent pic of a Side Striped Jackal, spotted this one on a very cloudy gloomy day, in fact there were 2 of them, not far from Skukuza on the S21.

Hi there,

I hope someone can help me to identify this Jackal. We saw him on the H1-2 just north of the H12 turn-off. He looked to be larger than a black backed jackal but was very light in colour and I believe the side striped jackal is quite dark. I know the pictures is not the best.

It's hard to tell, PietSkiet, given the body is obscured by grass. But it does look like a side-striped jackal to me :D

:yaya: PietSkiet, i tend to agree with Tom124 on this one. If you look carefully at ears of the Side-striped Jackal, on a bigger pic, it resemble the one in your Pic. :thumbs_up:
