Hunting with Hyenas
Hyenas are known for their vicious attacks on other animals. Even "laughing hyenas" can be quite scary. Sometimes scavengers and sometimes predators, hyenas eat prey completely, bones, hair, and all. They even attack lions. Luckily, readers can keep their distance as they look at the similarities and differences among the spotted, striped, and brown hyenas. All three have characteristics that allow them to survive in often harsh conditions. This high-interest topic, a complement to the elementary science curriculum, includes vivid photographs, fun fact boxes, and a graphic organizer.
