Spotted hyena, also known as the ‘laughing hyena’ seem to get a bad rap like most scavengers. However I think they are adorable, especially the young cubs. And who could resist a pair of spotted hyenas suckling. In fact they may suckle up to 18 months because the adults do not bring food back to regurgitate and often have to scavenge far away from the den. Seen at Kruger National Park South Africa.
