KTP Hyaenas love playing in their drinking water. My SO took these pics in Dec at Kij-Kij waterhole just after 6 am:

We had one of our best sighting of a brown hyaena at Kwang with 3 lionesses in the background. Still need to process the pics and will post later.

Also spotted a brown hyaena at Gharagab after sunset.

Jan,

Great shot of the brownie. Often you do not get a front facing view unless you can spot one from a hide.
