Some Wolf (Canis aureus "lupaster", bona species?) pictures...

...taken by Mrs. Mary Megally and Lajos Nemeth-Boka 20 km N of Assuan/Upper Egypt, on the West Bank (11 Nov., 2007). Seems so far the only pictures ever taken and the only observation of living specimen.

Update: From my recent tour to Libya I have got evidence of futher populations. Evidences incl. a skin and a photograph, will published soon.

The name "lupaster"should be used as provisorical, as the name seems to be a junior subj. synonim, while further genus-revision of original type-specimens required (pers. comm by Tony Gonzales, in press).

There will be articles appearing soon about this cryptic taxa in BBC Wildlife and African Geographic Magazines.

I photographed this specimen at 4200-4300 high in Simien Mts. I think its a normal Golden Jackal, but any further comment would be appreciated very much!
