Hyena

Hyenas are cat-like carnivorous mammals that are essential scavengers within the African ecosystem. Living together in large communal groups (clans) of up to 80, hyenas are known for feeding on the remains leftover by other predators though they are also skilled hunters of wildebeest, antelope, snakes, birds, lizards, and insects.

The average Hyena has an overall height of 38.0” (97 cm), withers height of 29.5”-33.5” (75-85 cm), and body length of 47.0”-59.0” (120-150 cm). A typical Hyena weighs between 110-190 lb (50-86 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 25 years.
