    Встретились две родственные души по духу ! Два социальных изгнанника ! Только понять не могут почему мы такие разные внешне, а желания одинаковые !!! Видимо это такой момент когда инстинкт отключается и появляется что то более сильное , возможно разум .

    Ah-h...amoré shines in the malevolent eyes of these cruel skull crushers as they gaze pathologically into each other's soul. This brings to mind many famous deadly unions of the past:
    Bonnie & Clyde
    Wild Bill & Calamity Jane
    Henry Lee Lucas & Ottis O'Toole

    Survival is the number one priority in the wild and all the animals realize it. They're very smart. They don't engage in unnecessary fighting only when it's necessary. That's why lions put up with hyenas, hyenas put up with wild dogs, etc. And sometimes you see weird associations because survival is number one.

    its funny because he thought the hyena was a dog at first, but they are related to wolverines actually, or was it bears, maybe Tasmanian devils?

  • dwayne johnson
    dwayne johnson 5 years ago +24

    That hyena knows damn well he is not about that canine life, but you know what this just gave me a good idea. A wild dog kicked out of the pack forced to go it alone. On the way he meats the hyena, and the two set out on a journey to find a wildlife refuge where they can be safe and live the good life. They will face many dangers on the way, poachers, predators, assholes with cameras, and worst of all Justine Bieber.

      no, all wildlife parks in South Africa have dirt roads (and sometimes tarmac roads) through them for people to go and watch the animals from vehicles. There will be no houses built here I am 100% sure.

    they understood that that was not the right time to fight with eachother. hyenas n wils dogs hunt in groups. group is their main strength. moreover there was no prey for them at all so why they fight???

    Yes, thank you anyways. They are closer to the mongoose than cats or dogs. But, are really Hyaenidae their own species.

    It looked like the Hyena was in heat?! Evolution in action. So that's one way new species come about? Hyena could have torn the dog apart. Hyenas hunt alone many times, and steal prey from even leopards in some cases. It's like the Grizzly and the Polar Bears when they meet were the ice and forest end. Sometimes they create a Ursid Hybrid (Grolar Bear).

    Only Humans kill without reason or for pleasure, the hyena was probably full so why try to kill the wild dog, also the dog is faster and most likely smarter.

  • Michael Harris
    Michael Harris 6 years ago

    The dog is lonely and looking for company. Laid down to establish a place of closeness. When the hyena walked away the dog got up and engaged further. Fatal attractions might explain it. Animals do this if there is none of their own species around or other similar reasons like rejection. The bites were to get a playful response but none came. A hyena who didn't laugh back.

    This is beautiful. The Wild Dog, does not even seem fearful he/she actually seems interested in wanting to play. And the Hyena eventually joins in and follows. This is this is amazing! Have you spotted these two anymore? Or was this a one time spotting?

  • Frank Burns
    Frank Burns 6 years ago

    lol, yeah, they are pretty ambitious with their prey for their size. Dogs are pretty smart, so they might be able to set their sights lower when they're on their own, but it's hard to say.
    One thing's for sure, this puppy was lucky that hyena was being so submissive for whatever reason. Those jaws would make short work of him.

  • Frank Burns
    Frank Burns 6 years ago

    No, under normal circumstances, one wouldn't, but this was a very weird situation. Both are pack animals, yet when they encountered each other, they were both solo. And the dog seemed to be lost and confused from the start, and probably hungry. I definitely don't think those nips were friendly or playful; they seemed much more like an attempt to size the situation up.

  • Frank Burns
    Frank Burns 6 years ago

    I know coyotes and probably wolves too will do that nip and flinch to prey that they're not sure about, hoping to trigger a flight response. I think that's probably what this wild dog was doing. Good thing for it, the hyena didn't run.

    The wild dogs run in packs similar to Wolves. They are also known as the most efficient hunters in all of Africa. They're also called, Painted dogs.
