p.1 #1 · Hyena- stuffed with food, and at the den


Belly full, this hyena left everything remaining of the cape buffalo to the vultures, jackels, and other lesser scavengers.
Second image- Mom and Pop near the entrance to their den. The two adults were very calm at our Nissan van's proximity (our driver knew when to stop his approach- he never disturbed animals or caused them to vary their behaviors). Well, maybe a little here; when we pulled up the babies headed down the den hole.
BTW, in hyena society, the "top dog" in a pack is female.
Also, hyenas are good hunters, although they have a reputation as being solely scavengers.
And, if a pack of hyenas encounters a lone female lion, they will often kill it. As competitors for food, the two species do not like each other. And hyenas are not cowards.

Nice shots Charlie, like the low light angle in the last shot -There is a famous Nat Geo video made by two very dedicated people Beverley and Derek Joubert in Botswana called "Eternal Enemies" that documents the conflict between Lion and Hyena. Well worth watching.

Nice pics Charlie of this powerful and often detested animal.
Some great videos on UTube on the eternal conflict between lions and these guys.

Great shots Charlie,
And the female is the Top Dog in the human pack as well Charlie. If you don't believe me, ask one.

Thanks mucho, guys and doll .
Sometimes it's hard to think kindly about the cleanup animals- but as it was pointed out, they are essential. And not just in the wild kingdom.
I was in Moscow as the Soviet regime was crumbling. Our tour group noticed how the trash was overflowing along many of the streets- cans of trash, bags of trash... lots of trash. Our Russian guide said that recently the government was so disorganized that nobody in the bureaucracy knew who was supposed to pick up the trash, and that it had been collecting for several days already, with no solution in sight.
The same guide said that the Russian people pretended to work- and the government pretended to pay them. And this had been going on for many years.
I may not love scavengers, but I'm glad we have them.
I'm also glad we have trash collection twice a week- I know it's twice because every Thursday and Monday at 4-AM the huge trash truck wakes me as it grabs metal dumpsters, raises them and then bangs them down several times to get the trash (mostly) into the truck.

Thanks Herb, Tom and Conrad.
Yep- Kodachrome 64 slide film.
99% of my posts were shot using film- and recently scanned and processed at home.
