Shenzi (Spotted Hyaena)

Shenzi (Spotted Hyaena)
Scientific Name: Crocuta Crocuta

Another “The Lion King” cast member played by both Whoopi Goldberg (1994) and Florence Kasumba (2019), Shenzi the spotted hyaena is not as easy to spot as its name may suggest and lives in a matriarchal society.

In fact, Shensi and her pack are probably hunting far from the Kruger National Park busy roads.

Also unlike commonly believed, the [lesser] spotted hyaena hunt for the majority of its food and is only an opportunistic scavenger, stealing from the likes of cheetahs and other smaller or less powerful predators.

It also sports the nices fur of all Southern African predators, it feels like a good quality silky wool.
