| 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.
