The striped hyena is predominantly a scavenger; its diet consisting mainly of carrion and human refuses. It scavenges large and medium-sized mammals, such as zebras, wildebeests, gazelles, and impalas, even eating bones from carcasses if the meat has been picked off. It supplements its diet with fruit, insects, and occasionally by killing small animals like hares, rodents, reptiles, and birds.. Water is consumed every night if it is available, but the stripped hyaena can survive without water for long periods and live under desert conditions.
