Hyena Coast

A Brown hyena pup will stay at its mother's side until the age of 15 months.
Brown hyena expert Ingrid Wiesel wants to find her favorite study animal, named Tosca, who has disappeared from her home range on Namibia's wild west coast. Ingrid's spent the last 17 years studying brown hyenas -- now she must journey deep into Tosca's world to discover what exactly has forced her to leave her traditional hunting grounds.
