Friday Fun: Gross Out!

Jackals scarf down whatever meat lions and leopards leave behind—even if it’s swarming with maggots and has been rotting for days. Ick!

When a mama jackal has had her fill, she heads back to her den. Her hungry pups lick her face until she upchucks reeking, rotting partially-digested mush. Then they gobble it up.

What happens if the pups’ eyes are bigger than their stomachs? No worries. Their mother re-eats the leftovers. Tasty!
