Carnivores – Hyena Jackal

Images of African Carnivores Hyena and Jackal.

In contrast to most species of African Cats the Hyena and Jackal are still common in many areas of Africa. The adaptability of the African Hyena and Jackal probably contribute to the continued survival of these species where most Cats are in decline.

There are two species of both African Hyena and Jackal. The Spotted Hyena (more common), Stripped Hyena, Common Jackal, Black-Backed Jackal.
