Description: A family of jackal pausing for a group photo next to their den.

Story from behind the lens: As we were looking for a leopard with its cub in that area we noticed some vehicle inside the bushes and we thought that we finally found the leopard. however, we saw this cute family of jackals. The cubs were playing with each other around 50m from their den since the parents were nervous about the mongooses in the nearby den. The parents made sure that their den is safe and empty before letting the cubs to go in. It was very touching and amazing to see how animals take care of their young ones and make sure that they are safe at all times.
