It's actually amazing that they are in SA almost only found in Kruger. Their habitat then goes through pretty much half of Swaziland and the onto the coast of KZN till about Richards bay/Ulundi.

that looks like a bbj to me. SSJ have a white side stripe and while I know night viewing is tough (the only privalage I get is after call more 7pm) im sure the pronounced black stripe is typical of aged bbj. The back starts to get more grey and the definition between tan and black gets more pronounced...as I shall try demonstrate *google*

kinda like that but ive seen better examples...

These two seen on the 5th may 2006 on the S3 near Pretoriuskop.
Very low light in the early morning.
I thought they were BB jackals until Impisi08 pointed out that they are apparently Side striped jackals...

Hi all,
Years ago I saw my first side stripe at Sunset dam. I have heard them around Talamati.

I had now twice sightings on night drives at L/ Sabie. I saw last year October one on a night drive at Lower Sabie. The guide (not one of the permanent ones, think he was a honarary ranger), identified it wrong. The tale is a dead give away.

Some of the tourists on this last night drive also argued and were confused and thought we saw black-backed jackal that looks scruffy. A dead give away is that the Side striped has a white tip on his tail while black-backed has a black tip.

I think more people see them and mistake them.

Good question and welcome Jehosaphat!

WAC is right, but nature has a habit of throwing the odd spanner into the works.

For example, all wild dogs are said to have white tail tips, but there was a female with a black tip that accompanied a pack around Skukuza for a long time in the late '80's!

Still, 99,9% guaranteed!
