That's a lot bigger than I thought Hyenas got, but the African Wild/Hunting Dog has always had a special place for me.

Ever seen one of these up close? They're head is almost disproportionately too big for the body. I want one... :evil: Too bad they're endangered. :roll:

Thats about right there, i read that a hyena could literally bite through an elephants leg bone, they are one of the few critters in the world that chew up and eat bone, thier mandibal muscles are amazingly huge.

At first I thought that photo had to be photoshopped. After doing a little research...maybe not. I had no idea they could reach 190 lbs. Thats alot of attitude on the end of a string.

Since we are in the Halloween season.......

Peter Hathaway Capstick; in his book "Death in the Long Grass", tells a story of a professional hunter in Africa back in the 1950's who was sent out to kill a marauding hyena that was killing livestock near some village in Kenya or Uganda. I can't remember which.

The hunter was told by the villager's that it was not a hyena, but a witch doctor from some nearby village who could turn himself into an hyena.

Of course the professional hunter being British, didn't believe in superstition and continued hunting the hyena.

Well he shot and killed it one night, and when he walked up to check the carcass, he saw it was not an hyena, but a human who turned out to be the witch doctor from the nearby village.

Strangely enough all the livestock killing stopped after the death of the witch doctor.

Capstick swears it's a true story. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I think these animals are more prevalent than we know. I once picked up a girl, at a club who was GORGEOUS!!  I took her home and when I woke up the next morning, she had turned into a HIDEOUS BEAST!!!

Another time, at a different club, I met another beautiful girl, took her home and when I woke up the following morning, she had turned into a disgusting looking PIG!!!

We must be careful at ALL times when we are out.

These creatures seem to congregate around places where alcohol is served. They wait until the unsuspecting man has consumed some of that alcohol, and at that point they turn into beautiful seductive ladies and then wait for you to take them home.

After having their way and using you, they then turn back into their real and disgusting selves!!
