Was this a captive animal? There are no wild hyaena species in Spain.

Yes. Sorry, I thought I'd noted that on submission.
iSpot's focus is on wild plants and animals, so best not to post captives if you don't mind.

Note taken, and apologies. Do you happen to know of alternative sites where captive species could be posted please?
No need to apologise John, but we have to draw the line somewhere! The observations on iSpot are of use in recording the distributions of wild species, and the issue gets confused if captive animals outside their normal range are entered here.
I'm afraid I don't know of any sites specialising in captive species, can anyone else suggest any?
Hi John - I don't know of any websites specialising in captive animals either, but if you just want to share the photos you could use Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket or even Twitter (where you post using Twitpic).
OK. Thanks for suggestions. Regarding bobthebirder's comment, I believe the unnatural reddish colouration may be due to the location of the collection being on the site of old iron extraction workings, thus the Hyena may have been rolling in the soil!
The red colouration will be down to the site being on an old ironstone mine, as the soil in the image shows.
