"Lives By His Wits!"
The Black-backed Jackal is monogamous and territorial. Their offspring serve as helpers. Parents without helpers have smaller numbers of surviving pups than those with helpers. A recent 6-year study in the Serengeti showed that 12 of 19 litters had helpers. Three pups as opposed to one may survive with just a single helper.
