I would like to know which species I have observed.
It concerns this observation:
1 Side-striped Jackal - Canis adustus
date: 2023-01-02
location: Botswana - Moremi Game Reserve


I am not certain at all because of the reddish color. But the white tail-tip ...
Initially thought of a cape fox, but it doesn't sum up. Qite nearby we have seen a cape fox, but the ears were much larger.
Help is appreciated.

There are two jackals in that region. And it is missing the  black back.
It looks likes the side-striped. The region and habitat, as well the time of day all match. So I'm sure you saw a side-striped jackal.
