Jackals – information

Jackals make a variety of sounds. They communicate with each other by yelling, barking, and sounds resembling a siren. In addition, this sound leads to the willingness of other jackals during the hunt. Despite the fact that jackals are known as scavengers, they also hunt and kill themselves. Lactating female jackals change their place of residence every two weeks to protect their young from predators.

There are three main types of jackals discovered on the planet: the jackal (Canis aureus), the striped jackal (Canis adustus) and the jackal (Canis mesomelas). They differ in appearance and habitat. A jackal ordinary lives in East Africa. Also there live representatives of two other species. It is noteworthy that they occupy different territories.
