Fireside Chat: Everything You Know About Hyenas May Be Wrong!

In this week’s Fireside Chat with safari guides Richard and Matt, we meet one of Africa’s most resourceful predators – and discover that a lot of our received understandings of hyenas aren’t accurate. Hyenas are often thought of as fierce and filthy, obscene, bloodthirsty and ugly. And while these assessments might be true in some regards – at least in the eye of the beholder – the oft-maligned hyena is so much more. Africa’s most common large carnivore, the hyena is not actually a “dirty scavenger” but in fact an incredibly skilled hunter. And this unique creature comprises an entirely separate taxonomic family on its own: Hyaenidae. Richard and Matt present a deep dive into their intriguing lives and behaviors of hyenas, sharing their experiences and interactions they have witnessed between hyenas and other animals that share their environment.
