It's a BBJ, Waterwatcher. :D The poor light makes everything look different, and also adds a spotted look which is confusing.

At Nossob it's almost a case of "If in doubt, it's a BBJ" they are very common there.

Is it a common sight to see a jackal sharing a waterhole?

This little guy seems to be avoiding eye contact as he kept this pose for at least a minute judging by the timestamps on the photos.

Thanks Trrp-trrrrrrrr. My friend said it was a BBJ but your answer seems more likely.
