Is there hyenas in Lebanon?
From 10 years ago Lebanon was full of hyenas but now because of the deforestation and the uncontrolled hunting there is still a little bit of hyenas and bears.

The country of Lebanon is mountainous, bounded on the north and east by Syria , on the west by the Mediterranean and on the south by Israel . Between the parallel mountai…ns ranges of Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon lies the fertile Bekka Valley. About one-half of the country lies at an altitude of over 3,000 ft..

the hyena lives in Africa and Asia. it is part cat part dog and it won't usually hunt its own food it eats remains of a lion or leopards meal. ----------------------------…------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Actually] Hyenas do hunt down most of their food, yes they still do scavenge on the side but most preds do. In fact lions steal the kills of hyenas a lot more then they do. which might be one reason most the time people find a group of hyenas standing around a lion eating is a good chance the lion had just chased them off of the kill beforehand. Also they aren't exactly part cat part dog. Though they do have more dog like features, they're said to be closer related to felines, But they're even closer to mongooses and civets, but for the most part, they're their own species to a certain extent, There is four known breeds of hyena's today. The most known being the spotted hyena, followed by striped hyenas, then there is the brown hyena and aardwolf. You can easily find plenty more info around the web, such as wiki for instance. And here's another place http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/hyena.html [a quote from their article] " Spotted hyenas sometimes scavenge, but, contrary to popular belief, they kill 95 percent of their food. As hunters, alone or in groups, they equal leopards, cheetahs and lions. Yet the lion is considered noble, the cheetah graceful and the leopard courageous, while the hyena is seen as sneaky and vicious-a cringing scavenger, a graveyard lurker" And another. "The chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall, working in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater, expected to dislike spotted hyenas, but they soon won her over. "Hyenas are second only to chimpanzees in fascination," she wrote; "they are born clowns, highly individualistic." Wildlife biologist George Schaller, studying lions on the Serengeti in the 1960s, exploded another misperception by reporting that lions scavenged more kills from hyenas than vice versa." And here's a blogpage from the Michigan State University [They have a research group for hyenas] http://msuhyenas.blogspot.com/ They are dog-like animals with a sloping body, as their front legs are longer than their hind legs. They have a short, sandy coat, covered with dark brown spots on the body and legs a hiena is mamal that lives on the African saphari and in other places as well once thought to be in the dog famaly the hiena is acualy in the cat family a hiena is a dog looking much like a grayhound but skinnier, it lives in hot countrys and is known for laughing insted of barking :)
lions are the main predators of Hyenas. Some tribes used to eat hyaena in Africa and Asia... It was considered a magical animal and had healing powers...In the Muslim religion… it is generally forbidden to eat carnivorous animals .but the Hyaena is an omnivore as it eats also fruits and vegetables, so may be subjet to exceptions. Generally speaking hyaena are not eaten by people. There are many other creatures which eat anything, such a worms and insects...vultures too, eat practically anything dead...and if the animal falls into a river , or the sea, many fish and shrimps will eat it...
no, hyenas cant laugh but they make a chuckling noise that sounds like a laugh. =)
they live in like the Sahara desert.
They might but not their family. If a hyena gets attacked and gets killed and the family members see it get killed they don't eat it. The same with the different kinds of hyen…as like a striped hyena wont eat a striped hyena or a brown hyena won't eat a brown hyena and so on. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Actually Hyenas do eat other hyenas. When it comes to Hyenas the females are the head honchos and from birth one of the female cubs gets picked to be the next pack leader (Matryark). the cubs fight alot and if the princess cub wants it may kill and eat her sister or brother and the mother wont stop her.
Hyenas survive by eating, staying healthy, and traveling with their clan. They are mainly scavengers, but they also hint some of their food.
yes.in groups I would classify hyenas as being more opportunist than hunter, as they are the best in the art of tribal scavenging. They are bullies and pro's at intimidating a…n animal who's distracted by chowing down on a fresh kill. Hyenas can be pests until the feasting animals give up and let the hyenas have the kill. When they're in pack mode, they think nothing of the danger of taking a lion or lionesses meal, they think only of the meal. When it comes to hunting they are not the most aggressive hunters, but because of their scavenging practices they will probably never go hungry.
Mount Lebanon was a province in Lebanon during the ottoman period, the French expanded it to become Lebanon. Currently, Mount Lebanon is one of 6 governorates of Lebanon, and… is situated in the middle.
lions and humans
No, i thought you everyone was thought that in 2nd grade!
Hyenas are name laughing hyenas because if you listen to a tape of a noise they make at night time while hunting for food it will sound like a mean laugh.
