Two black-backed jackals

30 May 2016

 

 

QUESTION:

What is the black-backed jackal´s mating behaviour?

 

ANSWER:

The black-backed jackal is one of few mammals to form long-lasting pair bonds. The pairs are territorial but a pair may be accompanied by young of the previous year as litter helpers. Both sexes mark the territory boundaries, and as most canids do they scratch the ground after urination with all the feet to spread the scent. The range size varies from region to region from 1.3 to 575 km2 per pair depending on the availability of food. It is diurnal and nocturnal but becomes mainly nocturnal where it is being persecuted.

Prof J du P Bothma wrote a scientific article about the black-backed jackal. Read more on this subject and other interesting facts about the black-backed jackal.
