The Golden Jackal is a wild animal that can be found in Africa and parts of Asia.

They are the smallest of the jackals, but make up for it with their cunning and intelligence. Jackals are opportunistic predators, and will scavenge off of other animals' kills or take advantage of easy prey.

They are also known to be very adaptable, living in a variety of habitats including forests, savannas, and even semi-arid areas.

Golden Jackals are considered to be a "keystone species" because they play an important role in their ecosystems by helping to keep populations of other animals under control.

Jackals are also very social animals, living in packs of around 10-12 members. They are known to be playful creatures, and have even been observed playing catch with each other.
