The reputation of carrion eaters precedes them. But when they have the opportunity the hyenas (fam. Hyaenidae) certainly do not disdain a fresh meal. The one in the picture, for example, has had to try out a dozen attacks before finally catching the poor pink flamingo. A brave hunting attempt: hyenas usually pounce on prey in a group, while this specimen has had to rely only on its own strength and on a good speed (up to 60 kilometers per hour). The whole scene took place in the highly alkaline waters of Lake Nakuru, Kenya.
