Clash of the Hyenas

A hyena pack staring back at the camera in Liuwa Plains National Parks in Western Zambia.
On a barren expanse of the unforgiving African plains, two spotted hyena clans are vicious rivals. While the clans wage an unrelenting war over territory, two cubs, born on either side of enemy lines, grow to formidable adulthood. NGC's cameras follow these cubs as they develop the bone-crunching jaws and survival skills needed to prepare them for their lives in the volatile world of hyenas.
