Hyenas are native to Africa, Arabia, Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Though doglike in appearance, they are more closely related to meerkats and mongooses. Hyenas have longer front legs than back legs. Some are striped, while others are spotted. Hyenas are carnivores. For more info check out our animal facts.
