In honor of Halloween (and no, it is NOT a day old), here’s a hyena, the actual scariest predator on the African savannah. These guys will literally steal food from lions. They’re highly efficient killers, and are most definitely not scavengers – though they will take opportunities when they see them and forage on kills, they can take down wildebeest and gazelle easily with teamwork so cohesive it’s brutal.
(This one wasn’t trying to scare us, though. It was yawning.)
