For the pet counterpart, see Pet Hyena.


The Hyena is a members-only land animal.

Default Appearance[]

Hyenas appear to have a slouched back, almost like a Wolf. They have a bushy tail that is like a striped hyena's, and front legs that are longer than their hind legs. When first purchased, hyenas have blue-grayish fur, along with purple-spiked hair and a purple mane leading along the back to their tail.


Acts Description
It has its two front paws out, mouth open a little, ears bending, and feet crouched in.
They hop up to their hind legs and lift one of their shoulders and rest their paw on their cheek. Then they 'clap' their elbow and other paw together side to side. Looks like they are doing the sprinkler.
They lay down, resting their head on the ground, and pointing their paws forward. Their ears also bend over a little at the top, sort of like a puppy sleeping.
Hops are very similar to the Wolves. their entire body jumps up, and their right paw reaches the ground faster than the rest of their body.
They start laughing until they drop to the ground.

  • It was released on June 1, 2018, and October 1, 2019, as a promotional gift.


  • The Hyena was first confirmed on May 14, 2014.
  • A rumor stated that Jammers who finished the hint puzzle were able to buy them for Gems, hence the glitch. However, Animal Jam Headquarters has denied the rumor.
  • The Hyena is the first land animal to not have a plush counterpart in regular versions of The Claw.
  • Hyenas have their own animated video, similar to the ones the EaglesDeerCheetahsKangaroos, Owls, Polar Bears, and Otters have, called "Ambushed".
  • Although they have the pattern of spotted hyenas, Hyenas have very long back fur and the tail of striped hyenas. Also, like a striped hyena, the tail and back mane are the same color and look joined together.
  • If a Hyena wears a Sword, Pirate Sword, or Golden Pirate Sword, the swords will be doubled. This is similar to the Panda, Pig, and Sloth.
