The Hyena is a members-only land animal that was released on May 29, 2014. It returned for another release on May 12, 2016, in the Diamond Shop until it was removed around the end of 2017. It came back with the Covered In Crystals Bundle on June 1st, 2018. They came back again in October 2019 as part of the Dark Moon Bundle.

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.

Actions

Acts Description
Sit.png
It has its two front paws out, mouth open a little, ears bending, and feet crouched in.
Dance.png
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.
Sleep.png
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.
Hop.png
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.
Play.png
They start laughing until they drop to the ground.

Trivia

  • It was put on clearance in October 2017, but it unexpectedly returned just a few days later on October 19, 2017.
  • A rumor was later spread saying the Jammers who finished the hint puzzle were able to buy them for Gems and that is why there was the glitch. However, Animal Jam Headquarters denied the rumor being true.
  • On July 9, 2015, AJHQ notified all Jammers via the Jamaa Journal that they won't be available in the Diamond Shop on July 23, 2015.
  • Previously, Jammers were given hints and puzzles as to what this new animal might have been. On May 15, 2014, Animal Jam Headquarters confirmed that the animal will be a hyena.
  • 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, they 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.
