are three types of hyena species, the spotted, brown
and striped hyenas. They also live in groups called
clans. These clans are dominated by the larger females
and the clans can grow to have up to 70 members.
Hyenas are important because they ensure that only
the strong grazing animals in the sahara live to
produce their offspring. They often eat the sick
or weakest prey as they are the easiest to get at.
The Hyenas has a digestive system that is very similar
to farm pigs because they too are capable of digesting
bones, horns and the teeth of prey.
