After repeatedly chasing off the scavengers, the lions were eventually able to enjoy their meal in peace.

But the hyenas did not go hungry for long with images showing one using its powerful jaws to capture a young gazelle.

Smash and grab: After picking up the scent of the zebra, the hyenas - known for being prolific scavengers - surrounded the lions hoping to use their considerable numbers to intimidate them away from the kill
German photographer Ingo Gerlach took the powerful images while on safari in the game reserve, witnessing the brutal side of nature.

While travelling through the park, the experienced photographer was alerted to the sound of roars and growls.

‘I noticed a dead zebra with two lions standing by it surrounded by numerous howling and shrieking hyenas.’

After picking up the scent of the zebra, the hyenas - known for being prolific scavengers - surrounded the lions hoping to use their considerable numbers to intimidate them away from the kill.

Unsuccessful: Despite their numerical advantage the hyenas struggled to steal the kill away from the pair of lions

But despite their numerical advantage the hyenas struggled to steal the kill away from the pair of lions.

Ingo said: ‘The lioness and a hyena were in front of my vehicle. The lioness’ facial expression was completely indifferent to the hyenas’ attack, however you could see the fear and horror on the face of the hyena.’

He added: ‘The lions were already noticeably full, nevertheless, they did not want to give up the zebra. They always chased off the hyenas.’

With each failed attempt at taking the zebra only serving to make the lions more agitated, the hyena pack were forced to find food elsewhere.

The ‘small snack’ was in fact intended for the cubs of the hyenas who were in their den waiting for their mother to return

Within moments, the cruel side of nature showed itself as a new born calf was quickly snapped up by the hungry hyenas.

Ingo said: ‘The two hyenas captured a newly born Thomson’s gazelle that was in the high grass. With a powerful bite, the calf quickly became a small snack for the hyenas.’

Unbeknownst to Ingot however, the ‘small snack’ was in fact intended for the cubs of the hyenas who were in their den waiting for their mother to return.

Ingo added: ‘These pictures are not easy to look at but it should be remembered that the hyena has cubs to feed who also deserve a right to live. This is the cycle of nature.’

Hyenas have the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom
Female hyenas have extended vaginas…1. A HYENA’S LAUGH INDICATES SOCIAL STATUS.
Hyenas don’t just laugh for fun. Scientists say that the pitch and the note frequency (or tone) of a hyena’s laugh can give an indication of its
age and social status.
2. HYENAS ARE SMARTER THAN CHIMPS.
The size of an animal’s frontal cortex is believed to be connected to its social intelligence, and hyenas have a frontal cortex on par with primates. A study done by Duke University showed that a captive pair of hyenas performed better at problem-solving and social cooperation than chimpanzees. Even more amazing is that during the study, the hyenas solved all the problems in silence, using
only non-verbal signals for communication.
3. THEY KILL BABY LIONS.
Hyenas and lions often fight over the same territories and hunt the same prey. This leads to fierce competition between the two animals. They steal each other’s food and kill off the young of their enemies.
4. SPOTTED HYENAS ARE CUNNING KILLERS.
Despite what Simba would have you believe, spotted hyenas don’t just scavenge for lion leftovers. Spotted hyenas hunt and kill in packs.
Ninety-five percent of what a hyena eats comes from hunting. A group of hyenas can devour an entire zebra, leaving no leftovers—not even the bones—in under half an hour. However, this feeding frenzy comes at a cost; hyenas rip, claw, and fight with one another over the remains of their meal.
Of course, striped hyenas are a different story. Striped hyenas live off of carrion and are often hit by vehicles while eating road kill.
5. FEMALE HYENAS RULE.
Female spotted hyenas are more muscular and more aggressive than their male counterparts. This is because the females have three times as much testosterone in their bodies. As a result, spotted hyena societies are matriarchal. Even baby girl cubs rule over the boys.
6. THE FEMALE SPOTTED HYENA HAS A PENIS.
Female spotted hyenas have a pseudo-penis that is basically an elongated clitoris. Some pseudo-penises can grow up to seven inches long, totally besting the average length of the human penis.
7. THE LIFE OF A BABY HYENA ISN’T EASY.
The female spotted hyena uses her pseudo-penis for urination, copulation, and birth, which can make the birthing process difficult—it’s estimated that
60 percent of hyena cubs die from suffocation. (It’s dangerous for the mothers, too; the baby cubs can tear the pseudo-penis lining, an injury that can prove fatal.) Those that do survive face several hardships of their own: Female hyenas have only two nipples, so litters of more than two have to fight to survive,
leaving the weakest cubs to die of starvation.
8. THEY HAVE CREEPY GREETING CEREMONIES.
When a spotted hyena greets another hyena after a long separation, they engage in greeting ceremonies during which both male and female members of the species develop erections.
9. BEING A MALE SPOTTED HYENA IS HARD.
In women-dominated spotted hyena clans, adult males are the lowest of the low. When the male hyena reaches sexual maturity at the age of two, he leaves home and goes to find a new group. This is a violent and vicious process. When the new group’s alpha female finally allows the male in, he is welcomed by being constantly harassed and forced to struggle for food and sex.

Wapi divio?

were you a joseph in your other life?

Si that hyena running away with a zebra’s severed head and dropping it in the process should’ve just asked for it Easlando styro: “Kichwa tuuu, Kichwa pekee haki!”

aki sitazamisha…

females have extended genitalia and males have small gonads, i now see why those Nigerians street perfomers prefer Hyenas, since they are easily trained due to their high social skills, hii wakati wote nilidhani ni uchawi. Asante @hakimoto for educating us

That young gazelle for all those hyenas ni kama kutafuna PK lunch time unarudi job.

The hyenas need to evolve one more time.So that in their new state they have the sense of killing their victim first.They devour them alive which is too painful
