Spotted Hyenas work in a matriarchal society, meaning their is a dominant female or queen that will be in charge of the clan. Within a clan’s territory they might have multiple den sites which they use when they have pups.
They are known to be very social animals and enjoy playing with each other, especially when the pups are involved. While we were at one of the Hyena dens, we were fortunate enough to enjoy one of these playful occasions between a mother, her baby and another youngster from the clan.
Enjoy the video.
