African Wild Dog (pack of 2) v Spotted Hyena
#1
African Wild Dog (pack of 2) - Lycaon pictus
Lycaon pictus is a large canid found only in Africa, especially in savannas and lightly wooded areas. It is variously called the African wild dog, African hunting dog, Cape hunting dog, painted dog, painted wolf, painted hunting dog, spotted dog, or ornate wolf. he scientific name "Lycaon pictus" is derived from the Greek for "wolf" and the Latin for "painted". It is the only canid species to lack dewclaws on the forelimbs. The African wild dog is the bulkiest and most solidly built of African canids. The species stands 60–75 cm (24–30 in) in shoulder height, and weighs 20–25 kg (44–55 lb) in East Africa and up to 30 kg (66 lb) in southern Africa. A tall, lean animal, with a head and body length of 75–141 cm (30–56 in) plus a tail of 30 to 45 cm (12 to 18 in). Animals in southern Africa are generally larger than those in eastern or western Africa. There is little sexual dimorphism, though judging by skeletal dimensions, males are usually 3-7% larger. The African wild dog's main prey varies among populations but always centers around medium-to-large sized ungulates, such as the impala, Thomson's Gazelle, Springbok, kudu, reedbuck, and wildebeest calves. The most frequent single prey species depends upon season and local availability. For example, in the Serengeti in the 1970s wildebeest (mostly calves) were the most frequently taken species (57%) from January to June, but Thompsons gazelle were the most frequently taken (79%) during the rest of the year.

Spotted Hyena - Crocuta crocuta
Shoulder height: 70-91 cm (28-36 in)
Body length: 95-166 cm (38-65 in)
Weight: 40.5-81.7 kg (89-180 lb)
General information: The spotted hyena is a species of hyena native to Sub-Saharan Africa. It is the largest member of the Hyaenidae, and is the most social of the Carnivora in that it has the largest group sizes and most complex social behaviours. Its social organisation is unlike that of any other Carnivore, bearing closer resemblance to that of cercopithecine primates (baboons and macaques) with respect to group-size, hierarchical structure, and frequency of social interaction among both kin and unrelated group-mates. Spotted hyena society is matriarchal; females are larger than males, and dominate them. The spotted hyena is a highly successful animal, being the most common large carnivore in Africa. Its success is due in part to its adaptability and opportunism; it is both an efficient hunter and a scavenger, with the capacity to eat and digest skin, bone and other animal waste.

Hyena wins without any doubts. I would even say that hyena can defeat two wolves. Hyena is much physically stronger than (more skinny) wolf or african wild dog. Hyena will kill two african wild dogs, but they will not be able to kill hyena.

Hyenas would best 4 wild dogs in a fight to death imo. Wild dogs are unable to kill hyenas and I have seen 10+ wild dogs attack a hyena, the hyenas leaves with minor injuries. I agree with Forbiddenip, a Hyena would probably even take down two wolves. A large Hyena that is angry is not an animal that should be messed with.

Quote:A Hyena that was harassing the dogs and the newborn pups. This was a picture taken as he got very close to the den site, and then realized he was too close!

The dogs pursued the Hyena chasing him far away from the den site. Good dogs!

On the last day we found one of the male dogs "White Stripe" badly injured from a Hyena attack. The Hyena chewed his back and legs,
and in the process broke three of his legs very badly. The rangers had to come and put him out of his misery. He seemed unconscious
from the time we found him right until the ranger was about to pull the trigger, and then for some reason he opened his eyes one last time.

Hyenas would struggle to catch the Dogs, but even two of these dogs could almost never kill a Hyena

The spotted hyena should have this one.
We probably should have used more AWDs, as hyenas are quite durable, and the spotted hyena is bigger than both AWDs combined.

No. Hyenas cant cope with multiple opponents. The Wild Dogs are too fast and too coordinated.

Yeah, I think we should've used more wild dogs for this one. Hyenas are too big and durable for two African wild dogs to take on in pairs.

Here is 4 Wild Dogs v a Spotted Hyena.:





The Hyena simply cant cope with their speed & team work.

I meant close distance. For example two wolves can scare away bear far in distance. In your case it will look like draw (As it usually happens). They can't kill each other.

The hyena wins over 2 African wild dogs. Much larger, more durable, devastating bite. But a hyena can't defeat 4 African wild dogs, definitely not more often than not.
