Striped Hyena


I had a GREAT sighting in Velavadar National Park of striped hyena.  I watched two young hyenas as they dug at a den in the ground, played with what appeared to be a carcass (being carried in the mouth of the hyena in the lower pic) and squabbled with each other.  Truly cool to see.  I think hyenas are undervalued, in India and Africa.  I've always enjoyed watching them, with their dog-like yet not-dog antics.

Oh, there's more here. Your luck continues. Excellent hyena shots.

I'll check out the rest of these later.
