Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A tourist traveling through a South African national park captured video of a group of curious hyenas that approached the vehicle and started chewing on it.

The video, filmed Nov. 16, shows the vehicle stopped on a road inside Kruger National Park while some curious hyenas investigate the car.

The animals begin to chew on the car's tires and mud flaps.

"Hyenas are born to chew," the filmer wrote.

"Hyenas have the strongest bite force of any animal on this planet. Letting them continue will leave your vehicle full of scratches and possibly a flat tire or two," the man wrote. "I have seen them biting through bumpers and tear number plates to shreds."
