Can hyenas breed with lions?

Can a zebra and a horse mate?

Can you raise a hyena?

Yes, Hyena can be kept as pet but with great safety precaution and care on your part as they are still wild animals. There are those who condemn keeping wild animals as pets but who ironically own dogs and cats themselves forgetting that all domesticated animals were once wild.

Who would win hyena or wolf?

Hyenas, even at the same weight, are stronger, faster, and more durable, intelligent, and endurant than wolves. Only advantage that wolves have is agility, but that won’t do much. Doesn’t help that hyenas are larger. One on one, the wolf is absolutely no match for the hyena and gets demolished.

Can a pitbull beat a hyena?

Nope. The hyena is slightly taller, but much thinner and less muscled than the pitbull. It has far less overall brute strength, but does have the most powerful jaw in the animal world. The critical advantage for the pitbull is that hyena’s are pack fighters and scavengers, so not accustomed to symmetric fights.

Can a rabbit impregnate a cat?

It is not possible. You can only breed between species if there is some degree of genetic compatibility. Rabbits and cats are not only different species they are different genera as well. Rabbits are lagomorphs (often mistakenly called rodents).
