The Hyena's in The Lion King give this animal a bad wrap! Our Hansa 9 inch Hyena stuffed animal doesn't look so mean, just the opposite, he is huggable and has beautiful color! He would make a great gift for someone who imagines being in the land of Hyena's and this guy would be the "Good" Hyena! Significant research goes into reproducing every animal species. The fabric for the spotted and striped plush stuffed animals is custom designed and exclusively manufactured in small quantities to Hansas exacting specifications. Their coats are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine.
Though hyenas look like large dogs, they are actually more similar to cats like lions and tigers. Hyenas have very powerful jaws and strong teeth. Spotted hyenas live in large groups called clans, which can include up to 80 hyenas.
