Brown hyenas live in dens. They like places like the Savanna, densare built in sandy areas, near rocks. Mostly At Parts In South Africa And Kenya. They Are Also Found In Botswana, Cameroon And Tazania
I think that they live in the southern part of Africa and they can also be founded in semi-dry deserts. *Sub-Saharan Africa, Northern and Eastern Africa*
Yes, they do go in groups to take down their own prey. Individually they kill offspring too.
Spotted Hyenas are endangered because of the things that eat the hyena. For example: Even though they like to eat baby lion cubs the parents protect them and kill the hyenas. Another example: US! us humans are killing them and when we put them into the zoos we are taking away more and more from the …wild. Even though we don't think it wrong to take them away form there habitat it is really wrong. Tootles (MORE)
Three of the four species of hyena are restricted to sub-Saharan Africa, where they live in drier environments such as savannah, bushland and desert. The fourth species, the Striped Hyena, is found in northern and eastern Africa as well as in Asia from the Middle East to India.
WHERE TO BUY A SPOTTED HYENA?!?! ARE YOU NUTS?!?! IF ANY HYENA GETS BOUGHT BY SOMEBODY, IT SHOULD BE IN A WILDLIFE RESERVE! IF YOU ARE JUST BUYING A HYENA FOR AN EXOTIC PET, THINK AGAIN! (sorry for yelling. I just love animals)
because people are annoying and they enjoy the screams of small children. oh wait that's a different story
hyenas do live in the us and they live in grasslands and woodlands and mountains up 3721 feet and they will eat you if you scare them and they run very fast up 50 miles an hour and they are meat eaters .
Hyenas are known to live in forests, grasslands, or savannas, andprefer dry climates. They also like mountainous areas, as well ashills.
They will the bones of animals after other animals have had their fill of the meat
Spotted hyenas can dig their own dens, but this is very rare. Usually they move into abandoned warthog, springhare and jackal dens.
Spotted hyenas usually sleep near trees or in underbrush. Thisprovides a level of protection when they are resting.
spotted hyena protect themselves by using their strong and sharp teeth it can rip down almost anything even metal.
Adults measure 95-165.8 cm (37-65.3 in) in body length, and have a shoulder height of 70-91.5 cm (28-36.0 in)
They can eat the leftovers that lions eat.. They can eat the leftovers that lions eat.. They can eat the leftovers that lions eat.
Depends upon the type of hyena: . The largest, the spotted hyena, also known as the laughing hyena, hunts and kills up to 95% of its food. The remainder is scavenged, but it is first and foremost a hunting predator. It hunts in packs at night, which enables it to bring down prey much larger than… itself. Preferred prey are wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. It has been known on occasion to bring down prey as large as a giraffe, elephant, and cape buffalo. In fact, its only competition for apex predator in those areas where it hunts is the lion, and if hunting success rate is the sole or most important criterion for apex predator is % of successful hunts, the spotted hyena wins with a 50% and greater success rate, while the lion succeeds only on 30% of its hunnts. . The two next largest, the striped hyena and brown hyena are both scavengers that hunt on occasionally. . Last and smallest is the aardwolf, a highly specialized predator. Its diet consists almost entirely of harvester termiites. (MORE)
The Berber people still presently live in the Sahara as well asmillions others who reside in cities and towns of the Sahara, suchas Cairo, Egypt.
Spotted hyenas are Conservation Dependent according to the IUCN Red List. This means that they are not endangered, or even threatened. In the short term they are in little danger of becoming extinct, in fact they are probably the least threatened of all the large mammalian carnivores in Africa . Ho…wever, in the long run, in order to reduce the likelihood of their extinction, a combination of research, setting aside large tracts of land as protected reserves, and working with local communities to improve animal husbandry and tolerate predators are probably the best hopes of any of the large African carnivores. On a side note, spotted hyenas are not dogs. They are more closely related to cats, but are actually in their own family, Hyaenidae. (MORE)
The spotted hyena is not an endangered species, maybe we should look to the brown and the striped hyenas, which are much less numerous.
Most hyenas live in the African Plains, but you can find plenty in most zoos.
Hyenas live in deserts and savannahs of Africa. They no longer livein caves but the ones that were around during the Ice Age did.
i believe it is indeed illegal to buy such an animal --------- i don't believe this is true. ive looked around the internet and all i see is if you have a LICENSE its perfectly legal. I'm sure this varies in states and im not sure if you could own all breeds of hyena either.
Brown hyenas live in the desert It's very rare you'd see a hyena in the desert though.
The spots help them blend in with their surroundings and break uptheir outlines, making it easier to stalk up on prey.
The Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta) also known as Laughing Hyena, is a carnivorous mammal of the family Hyaenidae, of which it is the largest extant member. Though the species' prehistoric range included Eurasia extending from Atlantic Europe to China, it now only occurs in all of Africa south of th…e Sahara save for the Congo Basin. Female spotted hyenas are considerably larger than males, weighing 12% more. Adult male spotted hyenas in the Serengeti weigh 40.5-55.0 kg (89-121 lb), while females weigh 44.5-63.9 kg (98-141 lb).

The amount of spots on a hyena depends on which spotted hyena your looking at. Hyena's are the same as cheetah's in the respect that each and every one of them has a different amount of spots which are all different sizes!
hyenas communicate with each other by making howling noises. these noises sound just like an actual laugh which can be heard more than two miles away by other hyenas.
The spotted hyena has a lot of adaptations they laugh when they are being chased or attacked. The spotted hyena has very powerful jaws that can crunch large bones. They also have long tounges to lick ants of bark of trees.
Hyenas live in clans of up to around 90 individuals, and yes, will hunt in packs, but also alone.
A hyenas niche is to eat animals and keep the population of other animals in its ecosystem balanced. it lives in Africa, South of Sahara Desert, in Open plains and woodland, but never true forests.
There are 49 hyenas in the United States 26 Males 19 Females and 4 Unknowns
Of course they travel in groups. They gotta satisfy their hormonal needs and they can't do it alone like humans can!
Their class is Mammalia, But if you mean as in like cat or dog they are Feliformia/Felidae.
1. Their Swahili Name is Fisi 2. One half of a spotted hyena's head is filled with jaw muscles. 3. The baby spotted hyena is not born with spots until they are older.
Hyenas are scavengers, they do not hunt and capture their own prey but wait round for some predator to kill something and they then come and eat the leftovers. Wrong, Hyenas kill 70-95% of their prey and are more successful hunters than Lions. Hyenas may kill small prey like rodents by breaking …the prey's spine. But when hunting large prey, they rip off cunks of meat the prey to bring out it's weakness: the intestines. (MORE)
Their size, relatively bad tempers, huge crushing jaws, loud, intimidating cackle, and their bold attitude. A clan of hyenas won't hesitate to take on one or two or three lions (depending on the size of the clan) and drive them off of a kill.
sometimes only when they are raising pups. i might have to look that up in a book or ask someone who studies them for a living.
There are three types of hyena, spotted, brown, and striped. The brown hyena is found in southern Africa, the spotted hyena in central, east and west Africa, and the stripped hyena in northern Africa and Asia.
One lioness can kill an adult spotted hyena but it is rare. Male Lions are the ones who usually kill hyenas.
yes hyenas can live in florida in fact time to time in my town in florida hyenas are spotted
They Live up 2 20-40 yrs of life time but if the hyena is lucky it can be longer
In the context of whether hyenas actively hunt other animals, absolutely yes! Hyenas are not just scavengers, they're hunters as well and have been known to often take down other animals like warthogs, wildebeest, zebra, meerkats, lions, young rhinos, young hippos, elephants, giraffes, baboons, monk…eys, etc. They've also been the result of a number of human lives being lost as well. Hyenas have been known to eat anything they can find or catch, not just scavenged carcasses. (MORE)
A group of Hyenas are quite capable of hunting their own food prey, though will scavenge a lion's kill if given the chance. If enough hyenas arrive at a lesser number of lions at their kill, the hyenas have been known to drive the lions off their kill for themselves.
yes, they can. they actually have more jaw strength than a lioness but they just don't use it because they are more like dogs. scavengers by choice. its a lot easier to scavenge than to kill it yourself lol
As with all wild animals they live in the habitat to which they are best suited.
A gray wolf would be stronger. The reason behind this is that hyenas are not animals that often attack directly their preys. They tend to attack weaker animals or eat the already dead ones and they never attack alone because they get scared very easily Wolfs on the other hand are taller and hyen…as get scared if something is higher than them. They run faster and definitely have stronger jaws, and most importantly don't get scared so easily. So a gray wolf would be stronger (MORE)
It is located in the northern portion of Africa, and it covers Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Senegal, Sudan, and the disputed territory Western Sahara.
They live in family groups. They hunt in packs. Only the dominant female is permitted to have offspring. Their families have strict pecking orders and each one familymember has a specific position in the pack. Both are top predators in their habitats. Both are keystone species.
A baby spotted hyena is called a cub. Usually a hyena gives birth to two or three Cubs at a time. Interestingly, Cubs of dominant females are more aggressive than Cubs of lower ranking females.
