Did you take this at night Jose? It look still like a fairly young one?
Joan, we were having a light snack outside the jeep at dusk; I believe this guy was attracted by the smell of what we were eating, so we had to get into the (open) vehicle. He walked around it and almost sniffed my leg right after I took this photo! :-)
I don't think you'd want to mess with him! :) Great shot.
Wow - what a spectacular shot and an amazing story you shared in your comment!
Wow amazing shot! I would have been really scared had that critter sniffed my leg.
The hyena seems to be afraid of something. Great capture.greetings
Wow, I have never seen one up close and personal. This shot is fantastic, thanks for sharing.
That's amazing that the hyena wasn't afraid of people at all. Nice of it to get within flash range, though.Thanks for the info on Terra del Fuego.
i like the hyenas, I find these animals so special! Besides, I do not think it was as big !.... always great courage! Attention to you anyway! bye.....
What an extraordinary photo! I've never seen a hyena except for in the zoo. Amazing!
I started laughing, I'm still laughing, I can't stop laughing. A hyena, heh, heh, heh, heh!Cute shot. Hope you used a long lens!
It resembles a dog a bit but I would NOT want to pet it! Mine is herepagan sphinx
They can be quite vicious but this one looks young. Neat shot!
LOL!! I am sure you got a fright. They get very brazen in some areas and loose their fear of man and so become dangerous, very much like what has happened to the baboons in some areas.
Actually he looks unexpectedly nice close up.
excellent catch!! regards
Great capture... but I'm glad you didn't lose a leg for it! Not an appealing animal...
Beautiful pic of a strange animal. Always compelling in a weird way.
It looks to me like you took this at night Great capture :))
