SPOTTED HYENA --Although dog-like in appearance, the spotted hyena is more closely related to cats, civets, and genets. Also called the laughing hyena, this interesting carnivore is found throughout Africa below the Sahara Desert, living in savannas, semiarid regions, scrublands and, in some cases, in mountainous areas. It is the most capable hunter of any predator its size. It is the largest member of the hyena family.

Spotted hyenas are born with their eyes open. They’re also born with a scrappy attitude, attacking each other pretty much as soon as they’re born.
