It is common in the central, eastern and southern parts of Africa. They are highly concentrated in the southern part of the Sahara Desert, in and around the Congo Delta. They are found in the entire southern region of the African continent except the southwest.
Spotted hyenas hunt in groups. Hunting techniques are different than other predators. When catching a large prey, such as a zebra, a hyena leaps onto the animal’s back and bites. The other bites its abdomen and takes out its internal organs alive. But their reason for doing this is that they cannot catch the animal by the throat and drown it like a lion or a tiger. Therefore, they must finish the hunt very quickly.
They hunt zebras and feed on what they steal from other predators. Although they mostly eat scavengers, they also catch large animals.
