It is commonly found in Africa and has adapted to desert conditions, even where water resources are few and far between. They are primarily predators, and their diet is very diverse –ranging from small invertebrates to mammals as large as gazelle. Other foodstuffs consist of fruit, human refuse, and animal carcasses.

Like many other animals, habitat loss is the primary threat to their population. Human activity and population growth expand human infrastructure, such as roads, settlements, and agricultural and residential lands, all threatening their survival. Losing their home, animals enter human settlements, where people consider them a danger to themselves and their livestock and kill them.
