Hyenas of the World Poster Print

There are four species of Hyena native to the continent of Africa. They are highly adaptable animals, and can be found in a variety of habitats, including savannas, grasslands, woodlands, forest edges, subdeserts, and even on the lower elevations of mountains. While they are often depicted as cowardly scavengers, studies have shown their "clans" have complex social orders and are perhaps as intelligent as some of the lower primates.

Information about the Striped Hyena:

The Striped Hyena is a species of true hyena native to North and East Africa, the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. It is listed by the IUCN as near threatened, as the global population is estimated to be under 10,000 mature individuals which continues to experience deliberate and incidental persecution along with a decrease in its prey base such that it may come close to meeting a continuing decline of 10% over the next three generations. It is the smallest of the true hyenas and retains many primitive viverrid characteristics lost in larger species, having a smaller and less specialized skull. Though primarily a scavenger, large specimens have been known to kill their own prey, and attacks on humans have occurred on rare instances. The striped hyena is a monogamous animal, with both males and females assisting one another in raising their cubs. A nocturnal animal, the striped hyena typically only emerges in complete darkness, and is quick to return to its lair before sunrise. Though it has a habit of feigning death when attacked, it has also been known to stand its ground against larger predators such as leopards in disputes over food.
