The meatz...we has it allz! Spotted Hyenas are visibly excited after stealing a kill from a silly lion. This is another "Toy camera" effect applied. Why yes, I find it normal to buy an expensive camera and then degrade the image artificially.

  1. They do look rather excited at their own cunning ability! I can just hear them laughing their eerie hyena laugh. And personally, I like the effect you added. It adds a sense of urgency to the hyenas as they run away with their claim. Posted 6 years ago
    1. Thanks Travis, I tend to go into extreme effects like this when the original has technical flaws. I use it as a distraction :) Posted 6 years ago
      1. Well, it must work because I hadn't noticed any flaws! Posted 6 years ago
        1. That's good indeed :) The original is a bit noisy, has a focus error and the wrong color temperature. Posted 6 years ago

The spotted hyena , also known as the laughing hyena or tiger wolf, is a species of hyena native to Sub-Saharan Africa. The spotted hyena is the largest member of the Hyaenidae, and is further physically distinguished from other species by its vaguely bear-like build, its rounded ears, its less prominent mane, its spotted pelt, its more dual purposed dentition, its fewer nipples and the presence of a pseudo-penis in the female. It is the only mammalian species to lack an external vaginal opening.
