Striped Hyena or Aardwolf?

Jump to last reply

I just came back from Tanzania, and im just selecting, uploading and organizing my photo's.
While doing so, Im again in doubt about some photos; whether it's an Aardwolf, or striped hyena.
When I spotted it, we (me and our guide) weren't sure as well, and after looking in a book decided that it was a small striped hyena.
But now I look at the pictures again, Im not sure... it doesn't really look like a young animal, and looking up some pictures of aardwolf on Google makes me even more confused.

So... what would you say.. the animal in these pictures:

aardwolf or young striped hyena?

I spotted it just outside the Olakira camp in Ndutu, at around 4 PM
