Spotted Hyena , South Luangwa , Zambia

 

Lurking around in the night. Always looking for a way to cause trouble and somehow they always succeed.

In daytime, they dream about the trouble at night...  "where and when is causing me the most trouble"

Hyena pup in the Kruger. I was sitting close to a den near Olifants Camp and the whole clan was on the road relaxing. A few pups came out onto the road and without any hesitation started to move towards me, with no fear. This one was right below my window and at one point had his front paws on the vehicle step, trying to figure out what I was. Very inquisitive little guys!

This was in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. What a sight! They are much larger than you'd think! He just finished feeding on something and had a drink at the waterhole.

Facing down 2 lions having just stolen the considerable prize of a buffalo kill (there was quite a lot of hyena backup).

 

Taken in the OMC, Masaai Mara, Feb 2017. Nikon D7200, 80-400mm @125mm, 1/2500sec, f4.8

This was the broader view with the lions using the vehicles as cover.

 

Details as above but D7100 with 16-85mm lens @16mm, f/11, 1/400 sec ISO 400.

 

Eventually the lions admitted defeat and left.

SPOTTED HYENA DEN VISITS.

Images 1-3 were taken in the northern Serengeti in July 2015. A classic plains den site, on arrival we counted 24 individuals with several more located in the grass as we left. This clan consisted of both adult males and females, sub-adults and numerous pups from different litters.The largest clan we have seen to date.

Images 4 & 5 were taken in Ruaha N.P. in July 2016. Possibly everyone who visits Ruaha will have visited this den site. Located near The Great Ruaha River under a large pile of boulders. Exactly what you would expect a hyena den to look like, bones and carcasses strewn around everywhere. Visited twice, on the first visit only one adult was seen (10.30 a.m. - image 4), early evening (poor light) the following day 2 adults were seen and 3 cubs.

 

Image 1: Spotted Hyena savanna den site. northern Serengeti.

Image 2: Spotted Hyena cub.

Image 3: Male (right) and female engage in some social activity? (Stand to be corrected on both the gender & activity).

Image 4: Adult at the den.

Image 5: Adult with 2 cubs.

@johnweir  The Hyaena den landscape is a nice image.

 

I'm far from an expert on determining hyaena gender but I do know that the female is bigger so it is probably male (left).
