ETYM Latin hyaena, Greek, orig., a sow, but usually, a Libyan wild beast, prob., the hyena: cf. French hyčne. Related to Sow female hog.
Doglike nocturnal mammal of Africa and southern Asia that feeds chiefly on carrion; SYN. hyaena.
Any of three species of carnivorous mammals in the family Hyaenidae, living in Africa and Asia. Hyenas have extremely powerful jaws. They are scavengers, although they will also attack and kill live prey.
The species are: the striped hyena Hyaena hyaena found from Asia Minor to India; the brown hyena H. brunnea, found in S Africa; and the spotted hyena Crocuta crocuta, common south of the Sahara. The aardwolf also belongs to the hyena family.
Spotted hyenas live in female-led groups called clans. Males remain with the group until puberty and then move on to join other groups. When a litter contains more than one female, they usually fight to the death. The female clitoris is unusually large, resembling a penis, so the females appear to have male genitals and show many “male” characteristics of behavior.
