Hyenas are formidable hunters, however, they are infamously known for their scavenging skills. This video shows why!

Sometimes the best surprises happen when you least expect to see them. Jason Joubert, a 33-year-old Trails guide witnessed this very rare sighting of a python who managed to catch an impala. The python's victory was very short-lived when a sneaky hyena, stole the impala kill right out from under the Python! Jason tells us the story:
“I spotted a hyena with his nose right to the ground, searching an open area. He seemed to be very interested in whatever it is he got a scent of and kept scouting the area for a while. Upon further inspection, the hyena found an African Rock Python wrapped around a young impala!”
Jason told LatestSightings.com that this was the first time he had ever seen a python with an impala catch and how exciting it was watching the hyena carefully sneaking closer to the python. It crept closer and closer until it was just close enough to snatch away the meal.
The python put up a good fight, mirroring the hyena's movement with its head, while still holding on to the impala! Eventually, the hyena wore the python down, and then it was quite an easy steal.
“I was ecstatic! In 13 years of guiding, I had never seen anything like this, I was just bummed that the python lost its kill after a lot of hard work though.”

    The whole thing looks staged, the python hardly moved , it would be extremely difficult to steel away an animal being tightly constricted, instead it looked like the python was coiled on top.Lastly the hyena just stared at the impala, why? was it stuffed?lets not forget this entire site is full of Kruger merchandising.

    The hyena was so cunning. It took its time,calculated and then grabbed the antelope. I suspect the hyena somehow “respects” the python. If it was another animal like fox,dog etc, it would just grab the food away as soon as it sees it. #MaximumRespect
