Thank you! We were always watching the hyenas, hoping for a chase. We discovered that they are very lazy!

I used to hate Hyenas when I was a kid, because of the Lion King movie haha, but after seeing them in real pictures, I changed my mind. This one is really cute, and I love the shadow of the plant on his right eye.
