    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. :wink:

    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...:)
