This was in the wrong section; neither lions nor hyenas are canines.

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.

One-on-one, Lion. Although a Pride, which can have as many as 1 male and 7 females against a Hyena pack, which can be up to 15 strong, well the Hyena pack will come put as the winner most likely.

I've seen on television that hyena jaws are much stronger than lion ones. Don't really know who would win a fight, though. Lions have their claws and a better protection.

Two lions against a Hyena pack is nothing, they would probably scare of alligator off the lions. But Hyenas are opportunistic, they wouldn't fight against a lion, gah, I saw an Animal Planet show about this, I'll see if I can find the video and post it here for you, Wolf777.

If a lion and hyena would go in a fight face to face against each other, I would put my money on the lion. It seems more realistic to have a larger and more muscular animal to win, although hyenas appear to be quicker and more agile. Brutal strenght is usually so fatal that I would have to say a hyena or even a pack of hyenas would not stand a chance against a full grown lion. Hyenas may have got massive jaw strenght, but lions are clever hunters and they've got body size advantage.

If we are talking one on one the lion no doubt because the hyena is stronger in a pack.
As i said if in a pack i belive that the hyena will win.

Lion vs. Hyena would probably end up with the lion winning, by brute force.

Lion Pride vs. Hyena Pack would probably end up with the hyena's winning, larger numbers and strong jaws.

a single adult lion vs. a single adult hyena would probably result in a dead or seriously maimed hyena, however if there were multiple myenas or if the lion were a cub or adolescnet the hyean would probably win

I a one-on-one battle, the lion would win. They are so hard to defeat because their thick mane keeps animals from getting to their neck. But a pride vs. pack, well, the hyenas would probably be strong enough in number and jaws (like previously stated) to take the lion down and defeat it with severe non-neck wounds.

Yes, a single lion versus a loner hyena, the lion would probably win with sheer power. But, A lion pride against a Hyena clan would most likely result with the lions running away. But, remember, only male lions have manes, and usually female lions are the ones who hunt. So, I would think only the females would attack the hyenas. And females don't have manes.

They are both very powerfull animals with both great body streanth and really stong bites so it would bepend on how the Loin and Hyena are in health and if it's a lone Loin and a lone Hyena

the lion has a size advantage over the hyena, not to meantion the loin's claws. i would have to go with the lion if it was one on one kind of think. but a group of hyena's can scare off a loin or two
