Horned Jackal or Churali is a mystery canid of the Indian subcontinent. Jackal with a small, bony horn at the back of its head, usually hidden by hair. It grows to about half an inch long. Sri Lankan folklore suggests that only the leaders of a pack possess this horn, which is called a narri-comboo. The horn is revered as a powerful talisman. A skull with such a horn was housed at the Museum of the College of Surgeons in London during the nineteenth century.

Possible explanationEdit

  • A genetic defect or physical injury might produce a hornlike growth in the Golden jackal (Canis aureus).
