A jackal

Jackals are territorial canines found in the deserts of Hammerfell and Elsweyr.

There are two types; a strong jackal with a large silver coat and dark orange undercoat that has average health, and a weaker jackal with a small silver coat and light beige undercoat that has less health. One dark orange jackal is often accompanied by two or more beige jackals.
