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 fo…od, 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 :) ( Full Answer )

Contrary to popular belief, hyenas are not related to dogs or cats. They are in a completely different family. The only animal that is related to the hyena is the aardwolf.
There are generally three types of Hyenas.. (1) The spotted Hyena ( most popular). (2) The Brown Hyena. ... and .... (3) The stripped Hyena. I hope I've answered your questions!
-The Hyena communicates using a high pitch scream that is too high for humans to hear. -The Hyena has very strong jaws, which can crush bones or even tusks. - Hyena's have long tongues, to lick bark off of trees, to eat ants.
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, s…o 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...

Spotted hyenas eat their own poopie and they like to pee on it to add flavour.
no, hyenas cant laugh but they make a chuckling noise that sounds like a laugh. =)
It's not a laugh like a human laugh, those vocalisations are far reaching ways of hyenas to communicate with their clan. Hyenas are social animals which live in huge groups (called clans) that may be spread out over a large area. They depend on numbers to scavange effectively from other predators, s…uch as a pride of lions, so they "laugh" to signal that they have found food or some other reason for other hyenas of the clan to join them.

Hyenas are neither canine nor feline. They belong to their own family, the Hyaenidae, which includes the three species of hyena (spotted, striped and brown), and their relative, the aardwolf. The Hyaenidae family is placed on the Feliformia (cat-like) branch of the order Carnivora, along with the fa…milies Felidae (cats), Viverridae (civets) and Herpestidae (mongooses). Hyenas are therefore more closely related to cats than to dogs, since the dog family, Canidae, is placed on the Caniformia (dog-like) branch of the order Carnivora, together with the families Mustelidae (weasels), Procyonidae (raccoons), Ursidae (bears), Otariidae (eared seals), and Phocidae (true seals). The dog-like appearance of hyenas is due to convergent evolution - the process by which different species evolve similar solutions to similar problems. While Hyenas are not technically felines, they are classified as being feliformia meaning "cat-like". Hyenas are classified this why because they have double chambered auditory bullae, which means that the bony capsule containing the inner and middle ear is double layered rather than single layered as is the case with caniforms. Feliforms also tend to have fewer teeth, shorter snouts, specialized cranassials (the premolars used to shear flesh), and retractable or semi-retractable claws. ( Full Answer )
Hyenas do eat carrion - the flesh of dead animals - but they will hunt and kill for themselves as well. Any wounded or sick animals or the young of almost any other animal are possible prey to hyenas.
Yes, they have very long tounges that let them lick the the bark of of trees. This is a major way in which they gather food. They also gather lots of food like ants for their young.
Three of the four species of hyena are found in sub-Saharan Africa, and the fourth is found in northern and eastern Africa, as well as Asia from the middle east to India.
Hyenas are dangerous because they are aggressive, have verypowerful jaws, and travel in packs. This makes them a threat toeven the most fearsome and deadly animals.
In a way, yes. There fur colors and patterns allow them to blend into different environments.
Hyenas are about 6 1/2 feet long (including a 12inch tail) weighing 175 pounds. 3 feet tall and 6 and a half feet long ;)
yes they would bite you if they had a chance The striped hyena is an omnivore; all other hyenas are purely carnivores. . A Hyena is an omnivore.. I hope I've answered your question!
A hyena is in the family Hyaenidae. Although these animals look alot like dogs, they are actually much more closely related to cats.
The spotted hyena typically weighs 110 to 180lbs and is 3 to 5 feet in length. Also, the female is generally a little larger than the male
yes in that it eats dead animals. however a hyena is correctly termed a scavenger not detritivore.
On the movie The Lion King, Scar and the hyenas died before Simba became the king.
i think that lions or maybe tigers and bears would eat hyenas. but if i were you i wouldn't listen to my answer!!!!!!!!! LOL!
there is 4 kind of hyena in the world one of them is spotted hyena the other can be a striped hyena. all the hyena in the world live in every continent but Antarctica.
Heyen's do not migrate. they stay in one general place to hunt for food and water and essental needs. Hyena are very smart! Yes
WITH Its F E E T !! True... A Hyena's shoulders don't move but they're back legs move like hips. Because they're back legs are smaller than their front, Hyena's kind of 'skip' when they run. Also their heads are always faced to the ground producing a 'hunched' look.
Hyenas are in the family Hyaenidae ; there are multiple hyena species across three distinct genera within this family.
If I am correct sort of their "laugh" might be considered a howl... I'm pretty sure they do.
Yes, they likely serve a similar purpose to that of a cat's whiskers; to find the right place to bite on its prey.
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 hyenas 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 are related to cats right? Wrong. I think they are related to dogs. It's just like lions. Scientists think lions are related to cats, but can they climb? No. Do they meow? No. ( Yes, other wild cats can meow.) Hyenas look like dogs, act like them, bark like them, and howl and hunt like them. …There is no way hyenas are cats. ( Full Answer )
adult hyenas are killed by lions in rare circumstances over food disputes. humans probably kill more hyenas than any other predator. they are mostly scavengers but when they do hunt they can suffer from injuries resulting in death by being kicked in the head or mouth which prevents them from eating.… automobiles, over population, drought, rabies and starvation account for many of their deaths. the single best answer for what kills a hyena is loss of habitat and food due to human over population. ( Full Answer )
Hyenas drink water like cats and dogs but they just eat animals they they kill or find the remands of.
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 an 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. ( Full Answer )

A cackle of hyenas Is a group of them. Much like you would say a pride of lions.
No. While The Lion King might have demonized hyenas for you, hyenas are just like any other carnivorous mammal. They are just normal creatures fighting to survive like the rest of us. The reason why they hunt other animals is because in the wild where they live, it's a "kill or be killed" system, so…mething that most humans have not experienced. ( Full Answer )
Hyenas have the most powerful bite force of all mammals of the animal kingdom. I believe they have a bite force of at least 2000 lbs per square inch, but it could be more.
one thing that helps them is their fur and is help them because they have had it their whole life and if they didnt have it they would probley like die
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.

The spotted hyena's call only sounds like laughter, they are not really laughing. They make this sound when excited.
