Spotted Hyenas taking a bath

This photo was taken at a water hole between Orpen and Satara. It was so hot that even the hyenas could not resist chilling out.

They look so relaxed in the water - we have seen this behaviour only once and in the Kalahari but with only one hyena in the water and not the whole clan!

I've seen hyenas doing many things but never taking a bath - nice sighting!
