Always the bad guys in the movies, hyenas have suffered bad press as the scavengers of the Savannah. But there’s another side to this story: hyenas are in fact bold hunters, and scavenge less than lions. They are also devoted pack animals with a sophisticated ranking system. Cubs are brought up communally and even the old and sick don't go hungry. We reveal the flip side to the ‘bad guy’ hyena story.
