hhhmmmmmmmm...well...unfortunently as much as i want to say heyena cauze i think they r cool as heck, i have to say lion.Lions are bigger yes but, what really counts is its power in its paws same with a bear rite?its really just my opinion but think one hard blow to the head and u fly.lol.but the heyenas and lions both have powerfull jaws no doubt.Maybe,if there was a group of heyenas against one lion.the story would have a diff ending....but i dont know

Both are vicious enemies and it's common for Lions to kill Hyenas for no discernible reason and vice versa. Hyenas will take out
Lion cubs. however... a single male lion weighs 150–250 kg (330–550 lb) and in terms of body length, 170–250 cm (5 ft 7 in – 8 ft 2 in) from head to tail.

Hyenas are a matriarchal society, meaning the women lead...female hyenas are larger, stronger and more testosterone pumped than the males...an odd adaption to being so 'manly' is the development of a pseudo-penis...so we have some pretty heavy duty girls. So a single female can weigh in at 44.5—63.9 kg (98—141 lb) or 69.2 kg (153 lb) and reaching a body length of 95.0—165.8 cm.

A lion's bite measured in psi is 600 to 1000

A hyena's bite measured in psi is 1500

A human being's is only 60-120 psi

It takes about 160 psi to break a human bone.

So We got some powerful beasts. The lion is heavier, the Hyena has the better bite. It's up to you to make the estimate. I personally say it would depend on both parties. One on one a lion is going to be heavier, thicker, bulkier, yet not less quick. A hyena is savage, sharp witted and sporting a terrible bite that not only has force but tons of noxious bacteria. A lion could die from his/her wounds.
wow that reserch/info is impressive! i didnt know half of that stuff till now awsome thx! :D

It depends. Both are group animals; a single lion vs a single hyena will probably end in the lion being the winner as they are much larger than hyenas.

A lion pride vs a hyena pack could leave a different outcome. Hyenas have one of the strongest bite forces, and can live in very large family groups. Both have been known to chase one another off prey sites, however.
Yes, thats actually true :3

I'm going to go out on a limb and say hyena. Lions have the advantage of size, but if you break it down, a hyena has a greater bite force. A 1v1 with the two would probably come out with the lion as a winner, but a hyena pack could run off a lion pride at their kill if their hungry enough :D

Size does not matter. Heynea was more jaw power than a lion. Lion has long powerful claws.

Well, because the question seems like it asks 1 lion vs. 1 hyena...
Lion wins. Its bigger, and has experience. Male lions live as outcasts 2 years (they can learn much and how to fight) only after that they try to be the leaders of a pride.
So the winner is: lion

It depends in what condition the felines are. Normally only young or too old lion males stray around. They are cannon fodder for any hyena pack so it'd be wise to avoid packs of other carnivores. Same goes for lone hyenas. Are there any lone hyenas? I think I've heard that young male hyenas gather to a male pack until they're old enough to look for females?
Are lions or hyenas faster and who's more maneuverable? The weight and claws are for the cat if you cannot hurt your opponent. :roll:

Sorry but the Lion would win. They can kill a animal with one bite and they are also pack animals and are very well organized. Hyena's are more of the scavengers type animals. They some times hunt baby wildbeast or zebra, but they mostly go for animals that have already been killed like coyotes.

A lion would most likely win while one-on-one with a hyena, but like it has been stated before, the outcome of a pride of lions against a clan of hyenas could greatly vary depending upon the situation and numbers of each party.

Still, I don't think that hyenas would chance a fight against a pride of lions very often.

Once I saw a show on Animal Planet, and it included short part that showed a pregnant female lion and a single hyena sharing a meal together. I believe that the lioness had killed it, but because she didn't want to take the chance of being injured while fighting off the hyena, she allowed the hyena to draw closer and eat side by side with her. It was quite amazing, but it also proves that the outcome between these two animals fighting depend upon the situation they're in, as stated above.

If Lions didn't have those killer claws the hyena might have a chance, their jaws can crunch bones. I even heard the sometimes eat the bones of their prey. But yeah, a lion would probably win, poor hyena lol.
