Here’s another fun fact:
Female Spotted Hyenas are larger than males, and appear to have a penis
They have a greatly enlarged clitoris (or pseudopenis) through which they urinate, copulate and give birth.
As a result childbirth has a very high mortality rate for Spotted Hyenas. They are essentially pushing 1-3 3lb weights through a penis. I would imagine there is a lot of blood.
The Spotted Hyena is the only species of Hyena with this particular bonus/handicap.
