Wildlife: Spotted Hyena

The Spotted Hyena Crocuta crocuta (also known as Laughing Hyena) is often portrayed as a lazy scavenger, but that is not the whole story, as it often hunts for its own prey, alone or in packs. This one on the prowl was photographed by Gerard Gorman in the Ngorongoro NP, Tanzania, in February 2014.
