This massive eagle chased a bunch of Black-backed Jackal kits into their den under that termite mound. The eagle harassed them for a while longer before mom showed up to chase it away.


Collection growth from July of last year until February of this year (there’s about 5-6 pelts that have been added since then). I haven’t figured out a good way to photograph my full collection nicely without taking them outside, which I’m afraid to do because I live in an apartment complex D:! If I can, I’ll probably take them to a random open field and photograph them there sometime during the summer.
