This most widely distributed jackal has coarse and relatively short fur with color depending on the season of year and region, varying from pale gold to yellow with a brown tip. They have long, pointed ears, and their tail is long and fluffy.
These jackals are omnivores, with 54% of the diet from animal origin and the rest from plant origin.
They are monogamous, meaning they mate for life and share most of their activity with their partners. They often forage, hunt, and rest together. When they hunt together as a pair, they are three times more successful than hunting alone.
