The opportunistic predators such as hyenas, lions, leopards… often look for young or injured prey as targets, in order to minimize risks.
The hyena is the most common carnivore in Africa. There are four species of hyena: brown, spotted, striped and the lesser known wolf hyena. While the spotted hyena is the largest species, all hyena species have large heads, strong jaws, and long forelimbs.
As sharp, cunning predators, this animal mainly follows lions, leopards…, and then takes their food to survive. In the above encounters, hyenas are rarely killed because of their reckless nature, sharp teeth and overwhelming opponents in numbers.
