Youthful Innocence


The hyena is an animal that has an undeserved bad reputation, and is seemingly considered the 'bad guy' of Africa.

In reality, it is a highly intelligent and evolved species, which, like all other fauna, is simply trying to survive and thrive, and is critical to the ecosystem.

There is a certain cuteness about hyena cubs such as this one.  Even though the hyena is an apex predator, scavenger and enemy of the big cats, it is an interesting and valuable species which is great to observe and photograph.
