Black-backed jackal eating a scrub hare - 4K stock video

Black-backed jackal (Canis mesomelas) eating a scrub hare. The tail flicking or wagging is a behaviour Jackals show when they are aware that another jackal or smaller predator is close-by and they are protective about their meal. It is a warning sign of alertness, determination and aggression. The black-backed jackal is omnivorous, eating almost anything that is available. It usually forages alone or in pairs. The hunting methods are variable; it normally pounces on insects, lizards and rodents, and pursues and subdues large prey. Black-backed jackals are efficient hunters of mammals up to the size of scrub hares and springhares. The young of smaller antelopes are also taken when available. Filmed in Etosha National Park, Namibia, Southern Africa
