The story of the Hyena (the Anteater's laws)


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


This account [of The Anteater, Springbok and Lynx] is again followed by the Anteater’s laws concerning the habits of various animals, such as the jackal, the 'Löffelhund' (Proteles), etc., who were, once upon a time, men (L II.-2. 323-356). The Hyena marries a female Hyena and has Hyena children. They live in a burrow. He hunts for food for them and brings them quagga, gemsbok, ostrich, ostrich eggs, springbok, and flesh of a man.
