Spotted Hyena


Spotted hyenas are fucking crazy.

They say spotted hyenas and lions are arch enemies, and a humanised version of their rivalry would probably make for some interesting stories. Because a lion pack is also made up of a lot of strong women, and unlike the hyenas lions don't have a real hierarchy.
We tend to think of the male lion as being head of the pack because he is stronger and can beat a female, but it's common for the females to gang up on him when they think he is being too cocky and need to be put in his place. So it isn't like the hyenas where lower members don't dare attack the higher ones.
Doesn't make the lions saints though. They steal the hyenas' food more often than the other way around.

I feel odd for kinda digging this. Then again I'm kinda submissive.

Those hyenas sound amusing, they are quite a different society but entertainingly different. Those differences provoke quite a fair share of thinking too.

@ArmchairCommando -- they don't have penises. They just have more testosterone than the males, which results in an enlarged clitoris that can function as a pseudo-penis. This has been seen in some cases with humans after sex changes - the example I'm thinking of is Thomas Beatty, who took enough hormone therapy to look like a man, including his clitoris enlarging to the point of being a psuedo-penis, but was still inherently female enough to bear his partner's children, since she could not.

@quimerico I wonder if there's anything .... uh, subtextual (is that a word?) about a hyena's group being called a 'clan'?

And finally, @Humon, you forgot something! :D When female hyenas are trying to lure males in for procreation, they vomit up their last meal and roll in it. Male hyenas are alllll over that. ;3
