If you know the answer, why ask us? I am going to say, in terms of strength, Lion.

Again, it really depends on the animals fighting, the battleground, the situation and who gets the first good move in (a bite to the throat, ect).

Honestly it really depends on who is fighting who. If it is one Lion vs one Hyena then its pretty obvious that the lion is gonna win. One on one the Lion has way more strength then just one Hyena. However if their is a pack of Hyenas against one lion, then the pack would clearly win.

I think the lion is stronger if it was one and one. If there were more hyena, then I would go with them because they are good at working to together and that kind of stuff. So it just depends for me.

I think I would have to say a Lion if it was one on one but if it was like in the wild then it would most likely be one or two lions and a pack of hyenas and strength comes in numbers; Hyenas would win that one I bet.

Hyena packs are documented rudely chasing lions away from animal carcasses and even stealing a lion pride's prey. However, in terms of sheer size and strength, a lion would win a fight between a hyena and a lion - lions are much more larger and powerful than hyenas albeit hyena's have an extremely powerful bite force. A pack of hyenas could also harass and ward off a lion or lions, but in an actual fight, a lion would win.

Lions are muscular animals. The size itself is bigger then an average hyena as well as the movement and ability is different then a hyena. Though often mislabeled as cowardly scavengers, spotted hyenas derive the majority of their nourishment by hunting medium sized ungulates, and frequently clash with lions over food and territory.

For exmaple:

LIONS

- Sharp retractable claws.
- More muscular body structure.
- Larger skull, more pressure on the bite.
- Lives and hunts in prides.

HYENAS

- Lives and hunts in packs.
- Smaller skull but has a huge impact bite.
- Scavenges.
- Pesters other animals.

Regarding hyena's scavenging, they actually don't reguarily. Hyena's are known to actually attack and kill fresh prey more than scavenge. They mainly steal kills, but they are known for killing their own food. Mainly, its whatever's avaliable.

It all depends on the age of the lions compared to the hyenas,but you said who's stronger not who would win in a fight none of the hyenas slyness would count therefore the lion.

As i stated she/he said who is stronger not who would win in a fight.

Well I agree with MagicMoon. Hyenas I think are pretty fast. So if one lion and a pack of hyenas fought, then I think hyenas will win.

Actually, hyenas hunt rather than scavenge.
