A medium-sized pack predator found in the savanna.

Hyenas are very dangerous creatures, the size of an average dwarf and appearing in packs of five to fifteen individuals, particularly in Adventure Mode. They are fast, have large numbers and will attempt to latch on to your throat and tear you apart. Bring an ally along and try to maim them one at a time.
