Grey Wolf v Striped Hyena
#1
Grey Wolf - Canis lupus
The Grey Wolf (Canis lupus) is the largest wild canid, males averaging between 70 and 110 pounds depending on subspecies. The Wolf has a specialized body that has made it one of the world's most efficient hunters. Its powerful neck is a very important adaptation: it has to be strong to support the wolf's large head and is crucial for bringing down prey. The skull is 31cm (12 inches) long and is armed with an impressive array of large canines and carnassial teeth which, when coupled with huge jaw muscles that are evident from the large sagittal crest and wide zygomatic arches, give it an incredible biteforce that is strong enough to break the bones of prey and even crack the femur of moose. Wolves primarily feed on medium to large sized ungulates (up to the size of bison 10–15 times larger than themselves), though they are not fussy eaters. Medium and small sized animals that may supplement the diet of wolves include marmots, beaver, hares, badgers, foxes, weasels, ground squirrels, mice, hamsters, voles and other rodents, as well as insectivores.

Striped Hyena - Hyaena hyaena
The striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) is a species of true hyena native to North and East Africa, the Caucasus, the Middle East, Middle and Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. It is the smallest of the true hyenas and retains many primitive viverrid characteristics lost in larger species, having a smaller and less specialised skull. The striped hyena has a fairly massive, but short torso set on long legs. The hind legs are significantly shorter than the forelimbs, thus causing the back to slope downwards. The legs are relatively thin and weak, with the forelegs being bent at the carpal region. The neck is thick, long and largely immobile, while the head is heavy and massive with a shortened facial region. The eyes are small, while the sharply pointed ears are very large, broad and set high on the head. Like all hyenas, the striped hyena has bulky pads on its paws, as well as blunt but powerful claws. The tail is short and the terminal hairs do not descend below the calcaneal tendon. Unlike the genitalia of the spotted hyena, the female reproductive organs of the striped hyena are normal. The female has 3 pairs of teats. Adult weight can range from 22 to 55 kg (49 to 120 lb), averaging at about 35 kg (77 lb). Body length can range from 85 to 130 cm (33 to 51 in), not counting a tail of 25 to 40 cm (9.8 to 16 in), and shoulder height is between 60–80 cm (24–31 in).

However wolf has only weight advantage at max but hyena have more powerful jaw then wolf.

At parity hyena win
At average hyena win
At max 50/50

I'd favour the Wolf in this one, particularly if it is a wolf from a larger subspecies of Canis lupus.

Taipan bro can you please explain what is the advantage wolf have over striped hyena except weight?

Large alpa male can easily defeat male hyena in all category, female hyena is too much for any wolves.

Grey Wolf wins 7/10

The Grey Wolf has an advantage with agility, speed and possibly stamina. The Grey Wolf also has the size and weight advantage.With a large and immobile neck and head the Wolf can easily get around and avoid the Striped Hyena's bite which is it's only real weapon. A powerful jaw isn't too useful when it can't be used

I'm not too sure on Striped Hyena stamina and couldn't find any data but considering the Striped Hyena is almost a pure scavenger, and only hunts small animals and insects I would assume it's stamina isn't too great (Considering it doesn't really need great stamina)

There doesn't seem to be any major advantage the Striped Hyena has over the bigger, faster, more agile Grey Wolf

At parity Wolf 6/10
At average Wolf 6/10
At max Wolf 7/10

Please check the skull and tooth comparison and decide who will damage a lot at parity or at average? i would give edge to wolf at max.

Even small striped hyena skull comparable with huge gray wolf skull.. 

That striped hyena skull is not real but a class replica..

https://www.amazon.com/Striped-Hyena-Tea...B008FCNP7K

That skull is 31 cm and has 16 cm width!!

Back the Wolf, due to its more gracile build and longer legs its likely more manuverable, but due to the Wolves size advantage it can compete in both strength and bite, as the skull comparison above shows.

First of all, you put the percentage sign after the number, not before.

Secondly, striped hyenas don't dominate leopards - they RARELY drive leopards of kills. But that is not called dominating, as honey badgers have scared of lions - so, by your logic, honey badgers dominate lions?

Thirdy, I don't know where you derived those values from, but you are WRONG.

The wolf wins majority of the confrontations with striped and brown hyenas. It is 50-50 against a spotted hyena, with a slight edge to the wolf for the reasons I mentioned in the "wolf vs spotted hyena" thread.

For all readers interested in this match up - read Hamza's post. He sums everything up correctly.

Quite evidently, you are underestimating wolves significantly. Read Hamza's post, and come back to me.

although i feel the same that hyena can win but not that easily as you though at parity, slaughtering similar size wolf isn't easy for similar size hyena how ever after tough fight they can.

The measurements you posted suggests the wolf has the longer skull, the taller skull, and being heavier while also being roughly equal in width.

how about tooth ? and measurement about largest wolf species vs smallest hyena species are almost similar even wolf has more weight advantage here!
