The Egyptian jackal (Canis aureus lupaster) also known as the African wolf or wolf jackal is currently listed as a subspecies of the golden jackal but may be a subspecies of grey wolf or a unique species in its own right. It is native to Egypt, Libya, and Ethiopia, though its post Pleistocene range once encompassed the Palestine region.

Famous quotes containing the word egyptian:
“What greater light can be hoped for in the moral sciences? The subject part of mankind in most places might, instead thereof, with Egyptian bondage expect Egyptian darkness, were not the candle of the Lord set up by himself in mens minds, which it is impossible for the breath or power of man wholly to extinguish.”
—John Locke (16321704)
