This really is fisi camp now...

Strummer decided to pay camp a visit yesterday (right outside the lab/dining tent here)! We've had cubs and subadults in and out of camp for the last few days/nights. Strummer is getting close to the age where he and his sister Ramone will graduate from the den, and we were starting to wonder if they'd graduated to camp! (Fisi is the swahili word for hyena). We finally got our answer last night as to why so many cubs were paying us nightly visits; the communal den has been moved to a series of dens in the plains right below camp. Now we just need the hyenas to chase away the baboons who have also been causing shida mingi (many troubles) in camp!
