that^s no doggie


It was dusk as I pulled in to my usual pooch pit-stop site, an old sand quarry. As we stopped I saw a bedraggled, vacant-eyed 'dog' plodding straight towards us as if it was totally unaware of our arrival.
My first thought - RABIES, the dumb form.
Then I noticed the long, dark shaggy hair, paler around the neck; the sloping back; the spotted legs; the powerful head with erect pointed ears gulp, that's no doggie
My second thought - Rabid Hyena
So I grabbed my camera and inched the window down just enough to get the lens out. The glassy-eyed animal kept on coming right up to the vehicle then slowly sniffed around it.
In my peripheral vision I caught a glimpse of two shadows, one bigger than the other, passing behind the bushes on the far side of the quarry. My hyena obviously saw them too as (s)he immediately looked up, woke up and briskly trotted on down the track.

My conclusion was that my hyena was a perfectly healthy juvenile perhaps 60cms at the shoulder (adults +/- 80cms) and that the shadows were the mother and sibling and that possibly they split up to check out the sand pit as they passed.

I returned the next morning to find the spoor; lens cap 60mm diameter

Brown Hyaena


Dusk on the nightdrive and a Hyaena promised an exciting drive. Sadly, this is the only big night animal seen (lions dont count: glad I am not a non-lion in this park).

Brown Hyaena


Popped out of nowhere to look at the lion kill. But never approached closer than 100m. Came and went several times. The lion reacted immediately the first time by moving the kill, but thereafter never even looked in this direction.
Quite a handsome beast with a shaggy overcoat.

Caracal-Domestic-African Wild cat hybird?


We saw this HUGE cat, the size of a large caracal - could have been about 70 cm high. First thoughts was a caracal, but upon closer inspection and zooming in a lot, this is what we saw. Have caracal hybridized with domestic cats before?
