Can an adult side-striped ever be confused with a juvenile black-backed? I know size is probably diagnostic, especially the muzzle; but I have been confused on a couple of occasions when the stripe seemed clear down the side, but then a rudimentary saddle-back may have been present too! Any opinions please ...

Debateable , would a juvenile be seen without an adult in its company ?

Hey guys! :dance: :dance: :dance:
I'll look for the white tail-tip, as this is a good way to be sure. It's just that the saddle-back of the black-backed is not always fully developed, and may seem rudimentary. I know the face is also more wolf-like with the side-striped, but the oneI saw running away near Orpen seemed to look like a black-backed, but with a stripe down the side! Tail it will be next time ... TX all.

I saw this side-striped jackal on the H5 near Mpondo Dam on the 4th May 09.
Seen 1 on the S114 before and 1 also near Lower Sabie - both a few years ago

Nice pics everyone, this is one that has still eluded me. :wall:


Last weekend they didn't manage to elude me! :dance:

We got two of them in the road but before I could get a pic they moved into the bush. I got this shot, but not a very good one. :(

We came from Letaba towards Mopani and just before the juction to the S50 we saw a dead snake on the road… and then suddenly in / from the bush two animals showed up. Looking at them I said…huhhh… that’s is not a BB Jackal … look at the tail with white end… and his body …different but “who” are they…? No time to read a book, no way to surf on the internet…only one solution and that is …photograph them …and later we will see what we have seen.
So…here the pics of them… beauties aren’t they?

-
First one I photographed just made himself visible in the bush
-
Image
-
Second one was on his way to the dead snake and played his game
-
Image
-
What do you do if you see a dead snake and like to show you don’t like it…
-
Image
-
Next… you walk around.. asking yourself what can I do with it….
-
Image
-
-
Image
-
and
-
Image
-
After sniffeling he was losing interest and walked back to the bush
-
Image
-
Getting back to the other and both disappeared into the bush…leaving us with a big questionmark…
In Mopani someone who could know confirmed they are Side-Striped Jackal.
-
Last view on them..
