WolfDhole, Jackal and Wolf

Jackals and dhole are larger than foxes, with black tipped tails. The dhole is the larger of the two and is best identified by its bushy tail and black cheek patch. Dhole exist in packs within Manas as well as further north in central Bhutan. Wolves live in packs, though males are sometimes solitary. Hunted as they prey on domestic animals, wolves are elusive. Dhole young are born in January and February; main breeding season being in November and December.
