I'm not sure about that, it has some spots. My husband thinks it's a serval, is that possible at Nossob? Although I can't find distribution in Kgalagadi.

It's a Black Backed Jackal...Servals aren't seen in Kgalagadi

Take a look at this list of animals that live in Kgalagadi.

Yes I had looked at mammals found in Kgalagad - so not that but it's the strangest looking jackal - must be the angle! :doh:
