Striped Hyena Confirmed Breeding on Tumaren

Not less than a month after our first observation of this species we have confirmed breeding within Tumaren. The pups were slightly nervous of the camera at first but within two hours they were relaxed – relaxed enough to chew through the camera’s strap then toss it around for an hour or so exposing some rather artful images seen below. when the camera was located this morning it was covered in dust and had been dragged half way into the den. Luckily they did not bring it all the way in as crawling into a Striped Hyena den to retrieve a camera does not seem like a very fun time.

The Ranger, Parm set this camera. Congratulations Parm!
