Today in the News: Hyenas

Science is a wonderful occupation: on the bottom of the North Sea a fossilized hyena turd was found. Researchers from the Natural History Museum are very excited about the find, because it gives an insight in the type of landscape the North Sea was before the last Ice Age: a dry and hot steppe or savannah.

Here are some historic hyenas from Europeana:
Medicina animae (De)
Expositiones vocabulorum Bibliae
The Ibex And The Hyena, In A Bestiary
