One of the many animals of the serengeti is the Spotted Hyena. It is called this because of the black spots it has running down its back. Spotted Hyenas are the largest of three hyena species (nationalgeographic). The Hyena is one of the ugliest animals you would ever see, its features are very close to dogs. Although hyenas appear similar to dogs, they are actually more closely related to cats (nationalgeographic).

If they have water and feed in the same area, they don’t choose to travel, but prefer to enjoy their local area (spotsnstripes).

The Zebras will fight when they can, but a mother will not usually die for her young (spotsnstripes). Wild zebras migrate every year along with the buffalow. You can usually find both of these animals grazing together. The largest concentration lives in northern Kenya, however, it is estimated that in 2006 there are only approximately 2500 Grevy’s left...
