This is the African Spotted Hyena. Also known as Crocuta crocuta. There are 3 different species of Hyena in Africa. The two relatives of the Spotted Hyena are the Brown Hyena and the Striped Hyena. Hyena’s live in family groups called clans. A Hyena clan can consist of up to 80 individuals at a time. Hyena’s are actually not dogs at all. The Hyena is closer in relation to a cat than a dog. A baby Hyena is known as a cub. Unlike a Lion pride, the Hyena clan is dominated by the females. Female Hyenas are the leaders and the alphas. The Hyena has the strongest bite force of any mammal on Earth. They are capable of biting through, and digesting bone. Despite common misconception of being scavengers, Hyenas are excellent hunters. 
(The bottom two are the Brown and Striped Hyena’s)
