A African scavenger.The hyena is more closely related to felines than canines.They are often thought of as filthy,mangy,scavengers,but they have been shown to catch their own food.Hyena mothers have been shown to take great care of their pups as well.Their jaws are made to crush bones.
They often are heard "laughing" or "giggling",but it is actually their call.They live in large packs,led by a female called the matriarch.The females eat first.
Wow,those hyena pups are cute!
