|The golden jackal (Canis aureus), also known as the common jackal, Asiatic jackal, gold-wolf is a Canid of the genus Canis indigenous to north and northeastern Africa, southeastern and central Europe (up to Austria and Hungary), Asia Minor, the Middle East and southeast Asia. It is classed by the IUCN as Least Concern, due to its widespread range in areas with optimum food and shelter. Despite its name, the golden jackal is not closely related to other jackal species, with morphological and molecular studies indicating a greater affinity to the grey wolf and coyote. It is a social species, whose basic social unit consists of a breeding pair, followed by its offspring. The golden jackal is highly adaptable, being able to exploit many foodstuffs, from fruit and insects to small ungulatesAdults measure 60–106 cm (24–42 in) in body length, not counting a tail of 20–30 cm (7.9–12 in), and 44.5–50.0 cm (18-20 inches) in shoulder height. Weights differ 12% between the sexes; males weigh 6.3-15 kg (13.9-33 lbs), while females weigh 7.0-11.2 kg (15.4-24.7 lbs).|

Ciao Tibi, great capture of lovely creature, rare to see on TN, beautiful natural ambientations, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
nice capture of this golden jackal. I agree with Luciano about the POV and the distance. The fact that this is a very rare species on TN makes this a really interesting picture. I especially like the natural colours.
Ceva foarte interesant neintalnit de mine pana acum. Ai intalnit specia in Romania? Este o specie putin prezentata pe TN. Detalii si culori excelente.
Un weekend placut!
