Hyaena – Brown & striped hyena

A group of hyenas might easily steal a lion’s thunder giving it a cutthroat competition

These ferocious animals are known for their violent behavior backed up by solid muscles and teeth. You might spot a messy den with bones everywhere if you decide to pay a visit.

These species are identified by hairy bodies and fur designed with stripes. However, unlike related species, the brown hyena (Hyaena brunnea) prefers to keep its fur spot-free. The front and back limbs do not line, followed by a huge head and forequarters that seem considerably more prominent than the hindquarters. These body configurations give the impression that they are continually sprinting uphill. Many myths surround hyaenas; for instance, some believe they eat children. Nonetheless, some people believe that eating striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) hearts is the ultimate source of courage.
