With all the attention on the antics of the curious Hyena cub, the adult Hyena picked up the remains of the Wildebeest carcass and walked away from the jeep and closer to the den site. The Spotted Hyena walking with the Wildebeest skull was an gruesome sight, but we recognize the fact that it was raw nature at its best. As this Hyena settled down to enjoy its meal, the curious cub and its sibling went straight for it.

The cubs were all over this Hyena; they were playfully nibbling at it, rolling over it, cuddling it. While the adult Hyena patiently tolerated the cubs and even engaged in some playful moves, one of the cubs slipped away with the remains of the Wildebeest carcass. The mother Hyena joined in the fun and it was a wildlife moment that we will cherish for a long, long time.
