Not only are the spotted hyenas the largest in size compared to other species, but they are also equally aggressive and noisy.

One of the most characteristic attributes of a hyena is its laughing sound. Even if a hyenas laugh may sound like an actual feeling of joy, it is a sound to communicate with other hyenas.

The four categories of hyena sounds are the high-pitched calls that show submission or fear, the low-pitched calls that show aggression, the pitch of the call indicating age, and the frequency variation that indicates rank. Laughing hyenas are some of the most advanced hyenas and are found in open areas and grasslands and in semi-desert conditions.

These helpful sheets can also be used to learn more about hyenas offering the kids a chance to learn more interesting facts about them!
