They’re known as the villainous sidekicks from “The Lion King,” but there's more to hyenas than that! With a bite strength of 1100 psi, their jaws are surprisingly formidable for an animal that reaches a weight of only 90 pounds (40.82 kg). Hyenas are territorial and live in clans, much like wolves, and communicate with each other using many different sounds and signals. One of the most famous is the characteristic sound of hyena laughter. They are nocturnal animals known for resorting to cannibalism and using their impressive bite strength to crush through muscle and bone.
