Jackals are one of my favorite Mara animals. We recently had an incredible sighting! Two jackals had torn apart a young impala carcass! One jackal had the top half and the other jackal had the bottom half. We were not sure if they killed the impala, but we suspect they did. Here are some pictures!

Keeping an eye on us and her half of the carcass 

Another jackal watching

This is hard to crunch!

Look at that red tongue!

It is hard to pick up and carry this! The legs are getting in the way!

An eagle flew in at the end to eat the scraps
