My husband, who went for a climb, came to pretty close quarters with a striped hyena.
This as much as anything else caused it to resemble the hyena—that is, the species known as the “striped hyena,” (Hyena striata).
It was a striped hyena; they could see the hair bristle on its back as it passed them with a whining growl.
The striped hyena, although the best known, is in my opinion the least interesting of his kind.
This species, though smaller than the striped hyena, is of a fiercer nature and more dangerous.
This is also a striped hyena, and nearly all naturalists have set him down as of the same species with the Hyena vulgaris.
