Where do jackals live?

in South America
in Africa and Asia
in Australia
There are three jackal species: black­-backed jackal and side-striped jackal of sub­-Sa­ha­ran Africa, and the golden jackal of northern Africa and south-­cen­tral Eurasia, from Greece to Thai­land. Modern research revealed that golden jackal is more closely related to coyote and grey wolf, than to other jackal species, so naming all three species a "jackal" is in fact a mistake.
