After being rejected from his mother only half an hour after being born, Odi the Hyena was adopted by Marcell Tournier and his girlfriend San-Mare Pretorious, and he couldn't be happier!
Shouldn't this couple be scared to live with a hyena? Here's what Marcell has said on the subject:
'We're part of his social structure.' When I play with him I don't hurt him but I'm always the one doing the rougher playing to let him know who's boss.
Currently, Odi lives at the Predator World Zoo near Sun City, in South Africa, and he keeps his owners very busy. Here's what Tournier has said about it:
He keeps us busy right through the night.
He may not keep the couple so busy in the near future though, because they're in the process of looking for a female companion for Odi. Hopefully it all works out!
We wish Odi and his family all the best!
