Description: Leopard and Hyena sharing a meal

Story from behind the lens: We found the hyena early in the morning feeding on the hippo carcass. We knew that Shujaa, the big male leopard was close by and waited for him to appear. Beforehand we were discussing in the car, what might happen in that case and were sure that one of them would have to leave. But surprisingly, when Shujaa appeared, nothing happened - both were feeding at the beginning at opposite ends of the carcass but after a while even side by side. We all were very surprised and even our guides had not seen such thing before. If the meal is that large, even natural enemies can share peacefully - a lesson, human beings still need to learn...
