ABOUT

This looks to be a slightly larger cousin to the hyena. It has spotted fur, stubby , thick legs and a blunt face full of large teeth.

The hyaenodon is a much more dangerous hunter unlike their common hyena cousins. They prefer hunting live game in lieu of scavenging and can have large hunting territories if food is scarce.
