“Spotted Hyenas are the most abundant predator on the African plain.  With a reputation as a scavenger, in reality it is quite a good hunter.  Hunger will drive them to take down large prey but only after all easier efforts have failed.  Although most of their hunting and foraging is done alone, at times clan members deliberately set off in packs to rustle up a meal.  When successful loud squabbling takes place it lets everyone know, including lions, “food straight ahead.”  Lions and Hyenas often compete aggressively to dominate a kill and their well-documented hatred for each other seems to run quite deep.” - John Banovich
