    Is the predator a Hyena? I'm not sure about the prey, I'm thinking kudu? I don't know too much about these things. Oh wait, is this a trick question? I'm so gullible if it is.

    Young Kudu headed south, he is laying about 30-31 meters south of where this photo was taken. The Female hyena is headed north, with a full belly.

    That would be a couple of homosapiens probably between the ages of 16 and 24. They were there between the hours of midnight and 0400. I would say one male and one female but you can't always tell these days.

    The suspense is killing me Observe. Is there an answer to this question yet? I'm starting to go a bit crazy. I looked a few pics of tracks on the internet and so far I think I have the Hyena correct. However I have to concur with Stretch and say that the prey track might be a warthog as opposed to my earlier choice of a kudu. What's the ETA of the answer to the puzzle? Pure torture I say, I need to know.

    Well, in my humble opinion, judging from the size of that spoor and by the prominent 'nail ' marks, I would also go for spotted hyena...







    Spotted Hyaena tracks show claws on the ground. The front footprint is always larger than the hind one
