Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

February 28, 2007

We drove by a hyena den and saw the young pup come out, look around, and nurse with his tired mom. We stayed a ways away and used telephoto lenses. Tragically, we saw several tour guides drive up next to the den entrance, despite signs saying to leave the den alone. In Tanzania, anyone with a Land Cruiser can be a tour guide.
