The Winner!

To the victor the spoils!

This is a follow up image to those in the last two posts. After all the fuss, fighting and commotion, along came this Spotted Hyena and claimed the remains for himself!

Spotted Hyena  Crocuta crocuta

The Spotted Hyena, also known as the laughing hyena, is a species of hyena, currently classed as the sole member of the genus Crocuta, native to Sub-Saharan Africa. It is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN on account of its widespread range and large numbers estimated between 27,000 and 47,000 individuals. The species is however experiencing declines outside of protected areas due to habitat loss and poaching.

This image was captured in the Masai Mara conservancy, south west Kenya, East Africa.
