Their diet is about half animal matter and half plant matter. They will
eat carrion, like most jackals, but also hunt rabbits, rodents, young
ungulates, ground birds, insects, fish, and feed on fruits and vegetation.
The Golden Jackal is very much like a small wolf. It
stands as tall as a moderately tall dog and the bone structure is common to
the canis family. It has a medium sized, pointed snout and long pointed ears.
Their fur is long and smooth and coloration varies depending on age, season,
geographical location, and individual.
