Spotted Hyena - Predator Extraordinaire
This image is of a large Spotted Hyena female, photographed in the complete wilds and freedom of Namibia, southwestern Africa.
Without a doubt, through my personal experience working in the conservation / national park arena, this is absolutely the master of all predators. It will survive through conditions tough and unbearable, it will obtain food guaranteed, and it will outlast one and all other predators. It is tough, hardy, determined and a very long walker. It is fearless, canning and will make a plan, it is patient and strong. It is a super animal.
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.
