The striped hyena has been photographed surprisingly frequently for such a rare, shy and inaccessible species that is disdained by most people. This is because the pattern of stripes – evoking the glamour of the tiger – is so photogenic that it outweighs the otherwise repulsive countenance of hyenas relative to canids or felids
