WILDLIFE -- Battle Royale: The Lions and Hyenas of Maasai Mara National Park

The African savanna is a place of raw beauty. It is also the setting for fierce battles between lions and hyenas. Tough and scraggly, hyenas are known as the "scavengers of the savanna." They are intelligent predators who are a nuisance to the king of all beasts because they target the same prey. While lions display overwhelming power, the hyenas' weapons are solidarity and teamwork, which they use to outwit their larger rivals. The standoffs between these carnivores can quickly escalate with hyena pups sometimes caught in the middle. Viewers get a front row seat as these animals use their size, strength, and smarts to compete for the top spot.
