Abstract: 

Among the many carnivores occurring in the miombo but not confined to it is the spotted hyaena (Crocuta crocuta Erxleben, 1777). This species is known as a flexible and unselective carnivore, distributed over sub-Saharan Africa. I examined the question how the spotted hyaena adapts its diet to this ecosystem and its prey availability. This expands our knowledge of the spotted hyaena in the Zambian miombo, which forms a linkage between eastern and southern Africa, and which so far rested on a single report.
