Brown-Spotted Hyena at Etosha National Park

While watching giraffe, springbok, and zebra at a watering hole in Etosha National Park, I noticed an odd animal that I couldn't identify. It drank and then started walking toward the car. As it got closer and closer, I realized it was a brown-spotted hyena. Excitement is putting it lightly… I snapped away as the hyena came into a very close range. This is how I got this photography and loved the wet look of this odd but very interesting wild animal.
