Territory and communication of the black-backed jackal
The black-backed jackal lives in wooded savannahs where it seeks refuge and litters in burrows usually dug by other animals like pangolins or aardvarks. It is a territorial animal which communicates with many vocalizations : screams, yelps, groans, grunts, barkings. At dusk or at sunrise, family groups practice a kind of wailing call to gather and to advertise their territory.
