Feeding-site selection by black-backed jackals on the Namib Desert coast

Dreyer H.V.A. ; Nel J.A.J. (1990)

On the coast of the Namib Desert, Canis mesomelas use specific feeding sites. Hummocks of suitable size and vegetative cover are a prerequisite: the main advantage to the jackals feeding and lying up in shelter could be energy conservation in an area of high winds, low ambient temperature, and low prey density. -from Authors
