The hyena family is a family of carnivores (Carnivora) with only 4 species left. They are relatively large in size, native to Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
Hyenas are probably one of the most hated animals in the world because they are actually a cold-blooded and extremely cruel animal. When hunger strikes, the hyenas will not hesitate to attack, cannibalism, even the young, completely defenseless.
The hyena is considered one of the most greedy carnivores on land, able to kill large animals such as zebras, wildebeest, wild buffalo, in addition to the ability to run fast also allows the Cranes chase even birds at close range. However, the hyena rarely hunts on its own, but mainly follows other predators such as lions, leopards… and steals their food.
Because the hyena’s body is not perfect for hunting like a lion or leopard, it is very difficult for them to control or kill their prey, forcing them to rely on other species for food. Hyenas also track and use scavengers like vultures to locate successful hunts.
The camera captured four hyenas eating a small wildebeest. Antelope can only helplessly accept being torn to pieces. Because it’s no match for hyenas..
