Common furry mistakes - Hyena by PunkRockVampire Common furry mistakes - Hyena by PunkRockVampire
I teaches you how2hyena.

Hyenas are actually more closely related to cats than dogs. They are not dogs and do not bark!
Hyena taxonomy: CARNIVORA > Feliformia > Viverroidea > Herpestoidea > Hyaenidae
Dogs and other canines are: CARNIVORA > Caniformia > Canidae

Also, some photo comparison of striped and spotted hyenas (and if you would just like some good references)--
Spotted Hyena 1
Spotted Hyena 2

Striped Hyena 1
Striped Hyena 2

It doesn't tie in with canines. It's got links to felines, but not canines.

They are their own species but are related to mongooses which are related to cats and somewhat weasels. :P

If they aren't dogs, are they horses then?

Thanks. I actually wanna do more of these for some other species that people have trouble drawing...I really need to do skunks in particular.
I like doin ref things like this, since I'm really interested in biology and like to study all the animals I draw.
