Pups – of a different sort


As an incurable dog lover, you will always find me posting dog photos from pretty much everywhere we go.  These cute little pups are a little different – they are spotted hyena pups that found one late afternoon just sitting by the side of the road in Kruger National Park.  The mother was about 40 yards away – also laying by the side of the road and paying no attention to her little ones.  At this age, the hyenas look much more like little dogs and they haven’t developed that lopey, lazy walk that the adults all seem to have.  These guys just seem like naturals to take home and play with.  We were especially lucky to run across these pups  with just a few rays of light breaking through the trees to bask them in a late afternoon reddish tint…..clicking for a close up is highly encouraged.
