Description: These prints were found on St Helena Island. they are about 10cm long. Sightings are of a "large cat-like grey animal, moving fast". We are keen to know if this could be an African mammal, which would be a biosecurity breach and very serious for us.

Description: This is the offspring of a male American Wolf and a female half American wolf, half German Shepherd. A rescue "dog" which is part of the legacy of the SA Defence Force's unsuccessful experiment using American Wolves to chase down guerillas in the 1980s. He is not feral but the much loved and well behaved pet of some friends of ours. And he has a fully paid up SANParks Activity Card for dogs.

Description: These photos were taken by my partner, David Swart, and he says he is happy to contribute them to Ispot. The Black-backed Jackal is called Phokoje or Phokojwe in Setswana. Sandy coloured carnivore with a distinct, well defined black back, speckled with white and a black tip to its long fox-like tail. As large as a medium sized dog. This individual was taking a siesta behind a trackside bush in Chobe National Park, he gave us a once-over but decided he didn't like the company

Cape Cross Jackal

They have to be careful though...in addition to this jackal, we also saw two carcasses. If the big seals get a hold of them, they make short work of the little canines.
