Kruger Hyena

This picture by Marc Crowther (南アフリカ) was taken on 29th December 2014 in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The picture was taken near Crocodile Bridge, Mpumalanga. This is a great close up picture of the animal as it shows the side profile of the animals face in great detail. It looks as thought the animal is concentrating intently on something. The hyena are often thought of as scavengers as they are often seen coming in to steal a kill from other animals, including their most common rivals the lion. However, they are also proficient hunters and have a great success rate of making kills themselves.
