Hyena cub


This is one of two brown hyena cubs that have been viewed at a den site with their extended family.  Brown hyena, although solitary in their habits, are quite social in their sleeping arrangements.  There may commonly be up to 12 hyena sharing a den. Once adults, these cubs will forage alone at night and return to a den during the day.   Much smaller than their spotted cousins, brown hyena are typically very shy and it is a privilege to see a youngster that is so confidant around vehicles.  These cubs will leave a den from about the age of 18 months, although a den site may be changed frequently to help keep the cubs parasite free.  Brown hyena are poor hunters and are mainly scavengers, feeding off bigger predators kills. They will supplement their diet with various types of vegetation.  This particular image was taken in the late morning when Mom brought the cubs out along with an older sibling, to enjoy the morning sun.

    É JOrge… o Partido dos Traidores, ops, dos Trabalhadores é um “ser” piamente crente que crianças e embriões são duas coisas compleeeetamente distintas, assim como as Excomungadas pelo Direito de Decidir.Afinal de contas, uma está no ventre da mãe, a outra está no colo.E ainda falam que são os católicos que acreditam em dogmas falsos.

    I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative
    and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Onpa jonkin verran tylsää, kun jotkut mouruavat täällä siitä, ettei ole riittävästi asiaa näissä jutuissa. Mutta siis, eihän tänne ole ikään kuin pakko tulla. Että voi jättää lukematta, ja samalla olla ärsyyntymättä. Minä tykkään!Minna
