Spotted Hyena observing cheetahs, Serengeti
This Spotted Hyena was persisting in circling two cheetahs resting further ahead. It was always ensure a minimum distance, and obnoxiously was acting as if it was *not* following them, but the point was clear: kill for me, so that I can steal it.
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.
