Spotted Hyena


Hyena - 1


Spotted Hyena in the Beauval Zoo.


Hyena - 2


Despite its bad reputation I find it to be a fascinating animal (on the other hand, what animal is not fascinating?)

      I googled it after you suggested on G+, and actually I had, I just didn’t know the name. Fascinating is the word, indeed.

    Good old Beauval! I was recently at Bordeaux Zoo with my daughter – that was my exotic animal fix for this year – but I’ll be back to Beauval next summer. It’s a brilliant zoo.

      How is Bordeaux zoo?
      Believe it or not, I lived three years in Bordeaux, 19 more years an hour away from Bordeaux, and I never went to the zoo.
      However, if weather permits, I may want to go during the holidays, as I’ll be in France and I want to bring my daughter (and Beauval is too far 🙁 )
