So there is one last exciting tidbit of hyaena related news…

On March 7th we caught and collared a second brown hyaena, a male called Chomma. Chomma means friend in South African slang. He had a small cut on his foot where he was caught but the vet treated it and he will heal soon. He was caught very early in the morning so we were able to get some nice photos from the processing before he was released again early the same day.

Noeks and I have been out tracking Chomma and Betton at night. They have been able to hear the VHF signal from their collars but haven’t got close enough yet to download the GPS information…
