Researchers have discovered that these “friendliest” hyenas not only have fun, but also gather in crowds to attack their enemies, like lions. It turns out that social connections and greetings play a crucial role in the decision to unite and confront enemies.

“Social relationships may overcome barriers to banditry and enable hyenas to gain cooperation,” said Max Planck researcher Tracy Montgomery, lead author of the new paper.

These findings not only give us a front row seat to the social dynamics of hyenas, but they also make us wonder what other secrets these creatures are hiding.
