Una Iena Solitaria - A lonely Hyena

Crocuta crocuta
Devo ammettere che non è uno dei miei
animali preferiti.Il loro apparire all'improvviso
nella notte accanto a me,non mi piace per nulla.
Dal vivo sono più grandi di quello che si potrebbe
pensare,e sono pure coraggiose (spesso troppo).
Devo anche ammettere che ammiro molto il loro
saper lavorare in gruppo in modo estremamente
efficace ed intelligente...
---I have to say this is not my favourite animal.
I don't like at all when they suddenly appear close
to you in the night.When you see them for the first
time you realize they are bigger then on television,
and I find them very brave too (often, too much...).
But I must say I admire their social organization,
and they can work in team very effectively.

We used to have a couple at the Veterinary Research Station when I worked for the Wild Life Officer in Zim. They were relatively tame, but I never gave them a chance to get too close when I was alone feeding them. I have seen what those massive jaws are capable of!! Not the nicest of creatures. Have a good Sunday Diane

Very lovely pictures, and I can very well understand the respect for them.. I would not meet any in the night!!

What an exciting life you're having! :)
