Spotted Hyaena (Crocuta crocuta), Masai Mara

Year: 2010
From collection: African Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
In the Maasai Mara, spotted hyena territories are stable, but not large, averaging 12 hyenas per 100 sq km. Prey is scattered and ranges are separated by wide buffer zones. Aggressive hyena inter-clan meetings occur when they are drawn closer to each other because of the wildebeest migration. The wildebeast migrate between Serengeti in Tanzania and Masai Mara in Kenya in search of water and grass between seasons.
