Practice for Predators

Posted by
Pied Crow (Abuja, Nigeria) on 7 January 2010 in Animal & Insect.

This baby giraffe unwisely wandered out of the bush and drew the hyenas' attention (see yesterday's post). While hyenas will prey on anything, this was not a realistic target for the youngsters...more of a game, though not for the giraffe.
