NEXT UP: 2nd seeded Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) vs 10th seeded Aye Aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) #2018MMM In the last battles, the cheetah ate the dunnart and the aye aye unnerved the coatimundi so much it retreated. Our scene is once again the Serengeti plains and once again the (still) hungry cheetah is being followed by a researcher named Anne. Aye aye pic=Nick Garbutt #2018MMM

First Up Tonight we have #16 seeded Belo Horizonte Marmoset vs. #1 Harar Hyena! #2018MMM Despite it’s long neck and loping stride, the spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta) is not a cross between a bear + dog as some people claim. The family (Hyaenidae) is more closely related to cats than the dogs. Spotted hyena range over much of Africa #2018MMM
