They eventually meandered over to a small watering hole, and suddenly two of our hyenas, Angie and Arrow, dove into the water. It was 6:30am, completely freezing, and apparently they figured this was a perfect time for a swim. Go figure. Anyway, while we didn't quite get the excitement we were looking for, we were still thoroughly amused.
The pictures are a little bit grainy due to the faint light, but here are just a few of the things I've learned hyenas like to do in the water:
Err... drowning each other?
And, my personal favorite, pistols at 10 paces.
Our hyenas frolicked in the water for a good half hour, and it looked like they were enjoying every bit of it. I was actually getting jealous towards the end -- it's been getting ridiculously hot here in the middle of the day and I'd love to go for a swim.
So, Kay, can we talk about installing a pool at Serena? Pretty please?
