Hyena (Striped)

Hyena (Striped) image. A long-legged, lean, tawny to gray hyena with a big head, long mane, bushy tail and prominent black stripes. It prefers thornbush and scrub woodland, avoiding areas dominated by the Spotted Hyena. Killing rarely anything larger than newborn antelopes, they are omnivorous, feeding mainly on carrion and insects. Several probably related females share a den during the day, but during night they forage singly.
