Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A medium-sized pack predator found in the savanna.

Hyenas are rare carnivorous animals who inhabit tropical flatlands, where they appear in packs of 5 to 15 individuals. As heavy as a dwarf, these predators' high numbers make them a threat to a lone individual if they're unlucky enough to be caught in their path, especially in adventurer mode, though their very low frequency rate means they may not even be encountered at all. They possess thick fur which provides them with increased insulation compared to most other animals. A newborn hyena is called a cub.

Hyenas can be captured in cage traps and trained into low-value exotic pets, and fully tame individuals may be brought in elven caravans. They give a decent amount of returns if butchered, but their rarity makes them poor targets for a meat industry. Products made from hyena parts are worth twice more than those made from more common animals.

Some dwarves like hyenas for their distinctive laugh and their coordinated hunting.

Admired for its distinctive laugh.
