    Interesting how the only real things about animals living is to eat, shit, sleep, repeat... Then have offspring to do the same things. What's the real purpose in life? Aside from being a predator or prey?

    *●This is a long post●*
    People don't realize it that hyenas are most underprivileged and almost handicapped carnivores in comparison to other +-similar sized carnivores. Below is how:
    1. They can't jump, leap, crouch, climb like the cats. Dogs are better in jumping & leaping.
    2. They don't have sharp claws and long canines. Only spotted hyena (SH) has better jaws & canines.
    3. They can't grapple.
    4. They don't have fast reflexes.
    5. They can run for long but not fast.
    Othe than above points, it's only SH which has social nature and they are the only one which can be called as hunters. The other three sub-species (there are total four) have almost nothing good in them. They are solitary and completely rely on leftovers.
    Now, how do you feel of your whole life relies on leftovers. The nutritious and the juicy parts are eaten by the other predators and the hyena only gets what's left. Only SH is able to get the real meaty food. The other hyenas get it only if their luck is shining.
    We feel agitated when SH displaces lion/leopard/cheetah from their own kill but, how many times have you seen brown/striped/aardwolf hyenas doing the same with other predators. Hyena's only power is their tough mentality and this is what keeps them alive. If they loose their mental toughness then, they will go extinct. Nature has not done justice with hyenas. They have the most pathetic life among the carnivores. Nature has deprived them from most of the mental & physical skills. Even dogs have been blessed with more skills and cats .. well, they are already at the top.
    Some of you might think that "at least as an scavenger, they don't have to take the pain of hunting. So many times hunting results in failure while eating someone's else successful hunt is less or no painful feast." Okay, so let's say you don't have job/business; you are dependent on your parents/siblings/friends/government. Since you are getting your food and some other essentials for free; plus, you don't have the pressure of job/business, it should be quite good life .. right! ..... Wrong. With a dependent life, you can't live the life of your choice .. you can't buy the things you want. You can't have your favorite food/clothes/mobiles/games/watches/shoes/other gadgets/home/vacation etc. You have the life whatever other throws at you .. you don't have your own respectful life. This is how a dependent/scavenger life feels.
    No Pain .. No Gain.
    So, next time when you hate hyena, make sure you realise how poorly a hyena has been created, esp. all other three hyenas and, how it feels to live a life of scavenger.

    • NoneOfYour Beeswax

      You make some good points, and Hyenas certainly do have the negative traits you mention. However, all animals have pros and cons in their physical makeup, but what they lack is not so important as the tools they have, because these are what evolution has provided to enable them to successfully propagate their species.
      And Hyena - particularly Spotted Hyena - are very successful being plentiful in most sub-Saharan regions. So lets me make the case to rebut your assertions and show that Hyenas are not physically handicapped, but on the contrary, extremely well-suited to their environment and have highly successful adaptations .
      I think we all know of the Hyena's jaws - more fearful and stronger than that of a lion, making even lions wary of confrontation.
      Physically, Hyenas can run fast enough to escape lions, but are not particularly speedy, but have exceptional stamina and can wear down any prey. They are built not for speed, but for power.
      Spotted hyenas can be bigger than (female) lions, stronger and hardier, and their body shape gives them enormous neck and shoulder power, and with the unequal front and rear legs they are perfectly shaped to grab hold of large prey and brace themselves whilst dragging it down. The thick hide and fur on the Hyenas' neck is such effective protection that even lions struggle to kill a large adult, and lionesses have no chance. Even so, Hyena can take an extreme mauling and live to tell the tale.
      Spotted Hyenas being social, they have clans and while their can be much internal aggression, they help each other in a manner no lion pride ever does. No hyena leaves their clanmates, they'll harass and bite lions who don't have the same co-operation when they are under attack. If hyenas are outnumbered by lions at a kill, they'll simply call for reinforcement and then mount an assault on them.
      Also, it's a myth that Hyenas just scavenge - they hunt and kill a greater proportion of their food that lions do, and it's lions ho steal most kills.
      Hyena are also, as you alluded to, immensely tough. You may have seen the TVclip video featuring a paraplegic Hyena in the wild,, having a broken back and two useless back legs, it walks on two legs! hyenas can take brutal punishment from their own kind, and from male lions when they catch them (lionesses almost never kill Hyenas, they are just not strong enough and fear their jaws. Only a male Lion can make a Hyena flee instantly.
      And no, they're not unintelligent - they're certainly more intelligent than lions, and are more successful hunters than lions.
      So I have to take great exception to your assertion that nature has not endowed Hyena with physical or mental faculties of any note - in fact the reverse is the case; they are intelligent mammals extraordinarily well-adapted to their environment.
      One last point - Hyena belong to a unique group of animals, they are not felines, neither are they carnivores.
      Have a nice day now :)

    Lets say she had already mated with a dog that got killed and was pregnant when 'adopting' this gaggle of animals- so ie she had the pups would the hyenas try to eat them, kill them, help take care of them, provide food for her as she was staying in den for several days or weeks?

  • mikeyb byekim
    mikeyb byekim 2 years ago

    Thousands, even hundreds, of years ago she'd have had no problem finding others. Now they're scarce and rare bc man started killing them off, essentially murdering them; and I say murder bc there was no good reason to kill them.
    Poor dog looks sad, these animals have emotions; their not just mind numb as the grassmunchers they prey on.

      @Liberty Pastor if curce u have the right to believe what u want but let me say someting from my life experience , in my country few of people drink wayn because "the messenger" mohamad and the "QURANE" provide us muslims to drink it plz do ur search on the afection of the wayn to the body , we do not eat pork always because of "QURANE" plz do ur search to see what pork do to the body , we fast every year one month always because "QURANE" and mohamad say it plz do ur search on benefit of fasting ! Not only that mohamad the prophete of god ask as "muslims"if we want fasting every week two days plz do yr search one benefits of fasting two days every week ,if u do your mind will be shoked !u will find what i say to u its true , there is more stuff to say but i want this be short ,and believe me i dont say this to convert u to islam no i just say some truths media wont let u now about islam

      @the X men No. It is the word of a man, strongly influenced by the devil. It contradicts the Bible, and therefore is not the Word of God.
      The Bible says, "The End" at the end, with a strong warning against adding to or taking away any part of it.
      Mohammed was a proven pedophile, a very wicked, bloody man. Learn history, don't just defend a religion.
      Jesus said, "By their fruits, ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:16-20)
      And I say that with all respect for your right to believe what you think is right, but Muslim law does not afford Christians the same right when Muslims are in control of a country.
      Wake up and realize you have been lied to and are passing on lies.
