Don't Just Stand There Grinning - Leave Now ! by 

Rare sighting of a young leopard and young hyena dealing with sharing a kudu kill. The leopard was definitely expressing an opinion here but he failed to have the power to push off the hyena.

    awesome catch … would have loved to have watched this play out.

  • Thanks ! Amazingly they tolerated each other for quite awhile. The leopard’s mother and brother were close nearby but they had no interest in eating. We watching it for about 45 minutes before we had to leave.
