    Could this be a bat-eared fox? Looks not hunched at all. The ears and tail seem right. Also it seems to carry something.

    Oh yes, could indeed be GW (former Golden jackal), not clear "saddle" here. I removed hashtag from black-backed , thanks Tillydad! 😃

    Yes, @maricksu, the usual BBJ markings are absent so I opted for GW 😃

    I'm glad you lot struggled as well; I had it as a dog, a BEF and then a jackal. But golden wolf is cheating; it's not even on the list : )

    Possible golden wolf lucky find, not often seen in these images, more common on nearby plains south of study area. It has not own option

    in ID list, it is correct to classify it as jackal in this project. Former name was golden jackal (just quite recently renamed in taxonomy

    as golden wolf). And still it is also possible, that this one is young black-backed jackal 😃
