Impressive Clash When The Hyena Wants To Sᴛᴇᴀʟ The Python’s Prey

Discovering pythons about to eat antelope, hyenas quickly ran to rob, persistently forcing pythons to let go of their prey. Mike Sutherland recorded the ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ for prey between hyenas and pythons during a tour in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, Latest Sightings on January 4 reported. “We drove around in the morning, during a time when many animals like boars, impalas and wildebeest were young.

During the trip, we saw a lot of baby impalas, some a few days old, others just a few hours old,” he said. There was a large herd of antelope hanging around the edge of the mudflat and one hyenas roamed in the distance, according to Sutherland. A python slithered down from a large gourd tree full of fruit and disguised himself in the dry leaves. The baby antelope walked right past where the python lay and was caught in the blink of an eye.

“We heard the antelope call, so we turned in that direction to see what happened. The hyena did the same thing,” Sutherland said. The python grabs the antelope’s leg and immediately begins to wrap around its prey to squeeze. Their interaction caught the attention of hyenas. The animal quickly ran to take advantage of the opportunity. Initially, it tried to grab and pull the antelope out of the python’s grip but failed. The hyena is very patient, trying to ʙɪᴛᴇ the python to force it to let go.

The latter grabbed both pythons and antelopes and carried them about 10-15 meters before releasing them. The hyena continued to harass the python, causing the python to eventually give in and give up. The python hissed one last time and then crept toward the bushes. The hyena quickly devours its prey while the mother gazelle looks on ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟʟʏ. “We were all fascinated by what happened, feeling quite confused and sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ. It was important not to interfere with nature.

Things will still be the same whether we are there to observe or not. This is an extremely rare sight. For the first time in 12 years as a guide in Africa, I have witnessed something like this,” said Sutherland. The impala (Aepyceros melampus) is a medium-sized antelope that lives in grasslands and open forests. In eastern and southern Africa they are prey to many animals such as lions, leopards, hyenas and African wild dogs.
