Did you know?
Do Hyenas really laugh? These large, dog-like creatures certainly make a noise that sounds like laughter, and they often do this to let other hyenas know that they've found some food! Hyenas are found in Africa and Asia, and live in groups of up to 80 members.
Fun Fact: The ancient Egyptians are believed to have tried to tame hyenas - but this only lasted a while and they were soon only to be found in the wild again.
