Golden Jackal Portrait
Golden Jackal Portrait, New Delhi, India. These wolf like canids are incredibly wary and have been very difficult to photograph. However after lots of perseverance and a change in tactics I finally started to get some good results!
These Indian Golden Jackals have adapted well to life in an urban environment, scavenging leftover bread and fruits brought for the monkeys and feral cows and pigs in Delhi’s ridge forest.
About The Indian Golden Jackals:
The golden jackal (Canis aureus) is a small canine, native to Southeast Europe and Southern Asia. Compared with the smallest of the wolf species, the Arabian wolf, the jackal is slightly smaller still with shorter legs and tail. The golden jackal’s coat varies in colour and patterning depending on time of year and habitat/diet. A Jackals diet largely consists of small mammals, birds and reptiles. Jackals are primarily carnivorous and will often scavenge kills made by other predators. In areas where no meat is available jackals have been known to eat plant matter if no other food is available.
