Hiya M.

Good to see you back. :thumbs_up: Opportunism, more so in hyena than Lion, also, hyena is IMHO not a cowardly animal but, they know when they will win & thus will be less inclined to attack humans. 8)

Hyena intelligence is well underestimated. :thumbs_up:

another question:

according to Smithers' "Mammals of Southern Africa" there are dominance hierarchies among females as well as among males...the latter was disputed during a night drive I recently took at Satara, the guide argueing that males do not have any hierarchies...however, I tend to believe Smithers - correct?

All you Hyaena lovers (me too) may find this old article about the University of California at Berkeley's hyaena colony interesting. It is still flourishing today and is still used for study. Other articles have noted that when raised in captivity, the hyaenas at Berkeley are not only intelligent animals but friendly, loving and playful with humans.

ice thank you for these wonderful pictures! The pubs sure are the cuteness! I hope that I come across a hyena den when I'm back to KNP in september!

BDCF thanks so much for the link to that article! I'll read it right now. I'm always eager to learn more about hyeans since there's still so much we don't know about this fascinating animal.

@ sprocky

This Hayena was it a live during that time you have done the photo? because it doesn´t look so good for the hayena. The wounds lokk very infeckted and at least one eye is mssing I belive that both eye´s got lost! This wounds look like fighting wound with lions it look more like scratching then bites. I wpould be intrested wen this picture was done and if this Hayena is still alive evenso the disadvantages will be heavy!

Best Regards

Malealea

We have filmed this movie in 2008 in South Luangwa, Zambia. However, I could not hold it back for you guys!

A hyena is trying to steal an impala carcass from a tree. A young elephant bull really gets nervous over the hyena. Does the hyena succeed? Don't forget to turn your sound on and listen to the power of its teeth!

I hope, you´ll enjoy it!!!

Thank you for sharing.

We met this one on the Biyamiti loop. Highly pregnant and badly roughed up. I could not resist a few mugshots.
