The Spotted Hyena is most famous for it’s eerie laughing sound, which gives it the nickname ‘Laughing Hyena’.

The most populous and most efficient carnivore in all of Africa, Hyenas have extremely strong jaws and digestive abilities that allow them to eat fur, bones and virtually any other types of animal remains.

They commonly hunt in large groups, but also hunt on their own or steal and scavenge from other predators like Lions and Leopards.
