Family Life – Hyena Style!

What a sighting …

Thanda Safari

Thanda’s Hyenas are rather shy and usually move away quickly when disturbed. But this morning, after heavy rainfall in the night, we found a Hyena family outside their den. Two little ones where playing around their elders and a very small pup had a prolonged suckling session. It did not want it stop even when the adult female got up and started walking away. For a little while the tiny Hyena was dragged along until it finally release mum. A beautiful sighting on a damp morning!
