Kisaru and Busara – independent life

02.02.2018
Living in a coalition provides a wide range of benefits to its members, including better protection and access to food resources. Amani’s daughters – Kisaru and Busara developed different hunting strategies and one of them was simultaneous hunting for two different objects. They successfully applied it in the areas with mosaic vegetation and hyena’ presence. As a result, one kill could be taken by a hyena, while the other one could serve as a proper meal for both females. Since the middle of January, both females have been spotted separately in a few occasions (we observed them been split by hyenas in the bushland), and then together again. Since the last decade of January, sisters have been spending more time lonely. These young females remained together as long as both benefited equally.
