Female Hyena Facts

Hyenas live in a female dominated society. Female Hyenas are the most masculine females in the animal kingdom. They have very high levels of hormones that are usually found in the males. Also many female hyenas have enlarged clitoris, to the point of looking like a penis. The female hyena urinates, mates and gives birth through this modified clitoris (it is inverted for mating).

    1. WELL WHO TOLD YOU TO READ OR LOOK AT ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE ASKED YOU FOR YOUR TWO CENTS!!!!!!!!!!! AND I CARE ABOUT HYENAS. SO BLOCK UP OR GET FOUGHT UP

  1. How ignorant you all are! There are male hyenas and there are female hyenas. Females rule the roost or the clan and so have more male hormones so are more aggressive and masculine. They have a pseudo penis – only the males have a real one and only the females can have babies – but with great difficulty. They are very intelligent animals. Maybe if TV doesnt do it for you information-wise you should read more and get your facts straight.

  2. I have read before that all Hyenas are born with a penis, and they will fall off if more female Hyenas are needed.

    Fail. Not true, ridiculous on its face.

    EVERYONE who watched Animal Planet know they are both male and female.

    Double Fail. Not true that hyenas are “both male and female,” that is are hermaphrodites, and also not true that Animal Planet ever broadcast such nonsenseexcept to mention it was nonsense that people used to believe.

    Win. Good to know somebody’s got their facts straight.
