1 Wandering in packs called clans, hyenas are not afraid of taking on animals much larger than they are! Their aggressive nature and skillful teamwork make them fearsome. They can even drive away hungry lions!
2 The spotted hyena is the most familiar to us. There are two other hyena species - the striped and the brown hyena. Why is the spotted hyena so famous? Well, the spotted hyena is a very vocal animal. When a spotted hyena wants to show its respect to a more senior clan member, it makes a sound that resembles our laughter. Because its "laughs" are so noticeable, we often nickname the animal the laughing hyena. While both the spotted and the brown hyenas live in African savannahs, the striped hyena also lives in the Middle East and India.
