Spotted Hyena Feeding

The spotted hyena is a common dog–like carnivore found on the dry open plains of the Masai Mara and much of sub–Saharan Africa.

Dark spots cover yellow–brown fur and their long muscular necks and powerful shoulders make them instantly recognisable.

Hyenas are built for endurance — their large hearts help them pursue prey over great distances.

These Hyena were photographed on the Serengeti in Tanzania.

This image was a photograph of the day on Earth Shots in 2007 although it is an old image

it still brings back memories of the noises these animals make. My driver risked a fine of $60.00 dollars to take me  of

the marked roads to see the Hyena close up and personal. We had seen the Vultures circling above them (indicating a kill) and drove towards them.

I managed to isolate the Hyena from all the Vultures and Storks to take this image, it is obvious from the Hyena’s snarling that they weren’t best pleased

by our presence.

The image I think shows a small part of the wildness of Africa.
