Lifelike, detailed figurine of a Hyena, part of the Schleich Wildlife Collection! This Schleich animal figurine has been meticulously hand-painted and is equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for high quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations. Fun facts: Hyenas can bite through bones and digest them. On the first glance, spotted hyenas look like oversized dogs. Striking are their long necks, powerful skull, brown spots on a yellowish-brown coat and the sloping topline. This is why hyenas always look as if they are ducking. Their appearance helped these predators to gain their bad reputation. To human observers, they often seem threatening and insidious. Indeed, spotted hyenas are the most successful hunters of the African savannah. At dusk, they prey on larger ungulates, but they also enjoy eating small animals, such as insects or reptiles. Sometimes they also take the prey of other predators, such as lions or leopards. Hyenas eat their prey completely, digesting the entire body. Only hairs are regurgitated again. Hyenas live in packs of up to 80 animals, always headed by a dominant female.
