Decoding the Hyena's laugh

Unread postby Melrockson » Tue Mar 30, 2010 6:55 am

Hi lovely forumites :D

I thought some of you may be interested in this article that I found today... they believe they have decoded the hyena's "laughs and giggles".

Enjoy! :thumbs_up:

I think this might have been this little one's first outing, spotted on the main road just south of Oliphant's bridge last month.

Just south of Olifants? We have seen mating hyena's just south of olifants... Maybe this is the result??? Is it an idea to put the film of the mating hyena's online?

I'm a bit confused as how to determine the gender of hyenas, so here's a question to the experts - are these two males or not?

Remarkable pic, ice! :clap:

Ja, I think you know the answer, but anyway...

This is a rather grisly subject as much reference is made to the "massively enlarged clitoris" of female hyenas, almost indistinguishable from the male's penis! :roll:

Hyenas also interact socially by "investigating" each other's unmentionables when they meet up.

I have no personal experience to add...that's what the books say! :whistle:

Size of paws would suggest a youngster in the foreground, and a slightly older one in the background. Big one is probably adult female... :? :huh:

sorry but no, I don't know the answer, otherwise I would not have asked - and quite frankly, I don't really get what you are saying, either... :roll:
