Who says spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta) can’t be cute! If there is one thing they all are regardless of age, it’s curious. On constant lookout for a free meal, they will sample almost anything just to be sure that it isn’t edible….even the tires of your vehicle! Incredibly fascinating social animals, this young pup has been left in the care of a subadult who had seen enough tourists to figure out that we weren’t anything special.
