Hyenas always seen to get a bad press, but personally I think they're quite attractive animals.

V1 and V2 show a hyena scenting the air by a small waterhole, while nearby, in V3, a vulture keeps watch on another hyena which has been caught in a snare at some time. The snare seems to have bitten fairly deeply into his neck, but he looked quite healthy. I imagine that provided he doesn't grow any more, causing the snare to bite any deeper, he should survive.

Fine series Roger. Not a great fan of hyenas, but they are efficient predators.
