Fact of the Day: Cat Hyena

While hyenas do share some similar qualities of the canine family (e.g. dogs, wolves,etc) they are not closely related. They are actually more closely related to cats, tigers, and lions.

  2. I can't imagine that my sweet cat Lola is related to hyenas. She is so quiet and I always thought hyenas were noisy.
