One of the many species of predator which roam the desert, the hyena is a cunning and opportunistic hunter, as capable of living off the bodies of the dead as they are at stalking and killing live prey.

Operating in large harems, hyenas use the same tactics as the wolf packs of the far north, pursuing solitary, sick, or injured prey until they are exhausted, then closing in from all sides to finish off their victim with their powerful jaws.

Fierce and extremely territorial, hyenas have been known to chase lions from their hunting grounds and have no fear of humans whatsoever.
