A dog's life....

22nd December 2011
For a long time, the taxonomic status of hyaenas has been under discussion. Should they be classified with dogs (Family: Canidae) or with the cats (Family: Felidae)? In the end, they are sufficiently different from both to gain their own family, Hyaenidae.

Here are two hyaenas making the most of the cooling waters of the Mushilashi, while idly chewing on an old buffalo skin.
