jackal kill in the Maasai Mara

Last Updated on 03/11/19 by quiltripping

In Kenya’s Mara ecosystem, a baby Thomson’s gazelle gives up its life to extend the life of a black-backed jackal. The jackal is part of the same animal family that also contains wolves, coyotes and dogs. It is a monogamous species whose pups stay with the family to help raise the next generations.

My trip to the Enonkishu Conservancy in Kenya was hosted by Biosphere Expeditions. All Content is my own.

Thanks for visiting.
