Spotted Hyena Pup
Large spotted Hyena pup taking in the camera. You can see this pup's brain working. I think this is a beautiful face. This animal might be a yearling.

Large spotted hyena pup at attention. Although hyenas look like dogs they are closer to cats. They are really quite wonderful. They are intelligent and as parents very caring. Their social group can be as big as 90 individuals and is called a clan.
