Yesterday we saw Sauer, an adult female, kill a lilac-breasted roller! Once dead, this bird was a popular item among the hyenas. Two cubs, Aunt Jemima and Gobekli, were curious and followed Sauer around trying to get a taste. Gobekli got hold of the roller first, but once he had it he decided he didn’t actually like bird. Typical, right? Aunt Jemima, only a year old, finally got to chew on it after everyone else abandoned it.
