The spotted Hyena den communally and they usually have two offspring. They change den every few months due to parasites, and immigrant males mate with clan females, whilst males emigrate at puberty.
I personally find this top predator to be fascinating and hope to witness Hyena and Lion interaction during the 13 days in Masai Mara. They are a far better hunter than many think and posses the strongest jaws among the carnivores.
I think their reputations is becoming a little more balanced as they historically has been portraited as the villain in nature documentaries. They do hunt themselves and are not solely scavengers. Lion do steal from Hyenas and vice versa. They rely upon numbers when on the offensive, but male Lions in their prime is still a force they seldom challenge. © Lensman – Lennart Hessel Photography
