Jackals are animals that appear in The Lion King universe.
Jackals are omnivores and scavengers that are related to coyotes and wolves. Some are solitary, some live in pairs, and others live in packs composed of a monogamous pair and their young. Jackals mark their territory with feces and urine. Black-backed jackals can be aggressive and will take on predators much larger than themselves.
Long-bodied and slender, black-backed jackals are known for their long legs and large ears. Their pelt coloration varies from brownish-red to tan, with a distinctive black stripe running from their shoulders to the bases of their tails, which are bushy and black. Their chests, muzzles, paws, and throats are white.
