Jackals, Hyenas, and Warthogs, and others

Among the smaller animals we saw jackals, hyenas, warthogs at various places.

Hyenas were often patrolling the plain. We never encountered any of them laughing. In an earlier posting there were some jackals and hyenas checking out some of the flamingos.

Warthogs have significant teeth in addition to their tusks (used mostly for digging) and are apparently sometimes hunted for ivory but presumably not used to produce bacon.

At one rest stop we saw a few hyrax including this one among some wildebeests. And at another rest stop his cousin, this non-native migrant animal.
