These three jackals were hand reared by Frenchman Alain in Western Senegal after they were orphaned (he intends to release them into a reserve if/when possible). Their vocalisations were extremely diverse, including barking and the growling and spitting you’ll hear in this recording. They were especially vocal when the hyenas kept nearby started whining and when humans approached.
