Hyena and Leopard Sharing Meal by 

I came upon a very unusual event. A young lone male hyena was at a kudu kill and and a adolescent male leopard approached. We expected to see fight, and what we found was both they hyena and leopard feeding together. In this shot, you can see the leopard hissing at the hyena and the hyena ignoring him.
