A runner

Jackals are not just scavengers, but are also predators of small to medium-sized animals, plus they are omnivorous.

Jackals are native to Africa, Asia, and Southeastern Europe. They are nocturnal and can maintain a speed of 10 miles per hour for expended periods of time. They serve a similar purpose as our coyotes.

Doesn't this one have interesting markings? To see what kind he is read our animal fact page on jackals.
