Pond Romping


One morning whilst watching hyenas consume a half-dead wildebeest, Kenna and I heard a cacophony of hyena giggles coming from a distance.  Curious as we are, (and also for the research of course) we began our search for the mysterious gigglers, trundling along in our trusty cruiser. Suddenly, using our spotted-hyena-spotting eyes we saw movement in a large pond located in Pond Lugga (aptly named.) Continuing our pursuit, we happened upon a group of playful hyenas. The following video consists of what we saw. (The music is simply a bonus.)

@Lily J-U: This is the Pond in Pond Lugga on the Talek side.

Glad to see that the hyenas brightened everyone's day! The video doesn't do them justice, it was adorable.
