Hyenas

Welcome to your learning resource!

hyena

 The Hyena, basically is to Africa what the Wolf is to North America.

They are the most commonly found carnivore on the African plains, and can be found on the majority of the continent, except for the rainforest areas.

Hyenas live in clans, and are both hunters and scavengers. Being both hunter and scavenger means that they frequently hunt for meat and sometimes steal it from other animals or eat dead creatures.

The female is the dominant sex in any hyena family, and she is three times larger than the males.

We hope you enjoy learning about them!
