The European jackal (Canis Areus Moreoticus), also known as the Caucasian jackal or reed wolf, is a subspecies of golden jackal native to Southeastern Europe, Asia minor, and the Caucasus. It was first described in 1833 by French naturalist Isdoire Geoffroy St. Hilaire during the Morea expedition. It's the size of the endangered Iberian lynx. Jackals look like they are related to red foxes but their closest relative are coyotes. In fact, it is one of the 7 subspecies of the golden jackal along with the Common, Siamese, Pannonian, Indian, Sri-Lankan, and Syrian jackals. Like some red foxes, wolves, and other animals, jackals live in North America, Eurasia, and Africa.
The Senegalese wolf (Canis Anthus Anthus), also known as the gray jackal, slender jackal, or anthus, is the nominate subspecies of the African golden wolf native to Senegal and is larger than the Egyptian wolf and is 2.54 cm higher at the shoulder and several inches in length.
