Spotted hyenas are famed scavengers and often dine on the leftovers of other predators. But these hardy beasts are also skilled hunters that will take down wildebeest or antelope. They also kill and eat birds, lizards, snakes, and insects.
Spotted hyenas are the largest of three hyena species. Brown and striped hyenas are the other two. Although hyenas appear similar to dogs, they are actually more closely related to cats. They live throughout much of Africa and eastwards through Arabia to India. Spotted hyenas live together in large groups called clans that may include up 80 individuals and are led by females.
Spotted hyenas have good hearing and sharp eyesight at night. They are fast and can run for long distances without tiring. Packs work together effectively to isolate a herd animal, sometimes one that is ill or infirm, and pursue it to the death. The victors often squabble over the spoils, either among themselves or with other powerful animals like lions.
Spotted hyenas are quite vocal and make a wide variety of sounds, including the “laughing” that has long been associated with their name. .

They primarily feed on Palm nuts, almost certainly those of Butia yatay.

One thing I am learning is the importance of feeling positive and good. It’s easy to go down rabbit warrens of despair especially with the conservation dilemmas we face. But that emotion makes us slow down, freak out and do less. However, when we feel inspired by a person or a happy event we get excited and feel empowered. We do more. That’s why we wanted to share feel good conservation stories about brave people and brave wildlife. This month’s story is ‘Lion Queen’ celebrating the @zcp_org in partnership with the DNPW and their work in giving this wonderful lioness a chance to live a full and successful life. Link in bio, enjoy!

Did you know a group of Zebra is called a Dazzle?
Each zebra’s stripes are unique. As no two humans have the same fingerprints, no two zebras have the same stripe pattern. Because each individual’s stripes are unique, their stripes may also have a social purpose, helping zebras to recognize each other!

Not only did this elephant feed wild lions, hyenas and vultures, the remaining meat still went to local people and a local wildlife rehab for their big cats, hyenas and wild dogs. By the end of the night, everything was gone. Nothing was wasted.
All the rain today makes me realize again how powerful and adaptable nature is. Only a few weeks ago, this waterbuck was still struggling to survive and now the bush is so lush and green!

There are two resident species of bee-eater in Kruger - the little and the white-fronted.
