Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
Although I've seen spotted hyenas before, this trip I saw some young ones. Pictured here is a baby hyena nursing from mom. In a separate sighting, a young hyena came up the rod very curious about our vehicle and gave it a good luck; that's the other picture. Both viewings were very nice. Although some people don't like hyenas, I do. I think they are fascinating animals, from their matriarchal societies and hunting methods to their strange lopes and calls. They always remind me of dogs even though supposedly they are not really related.
