I guess I mean spotted hyena. Thanks for writing out their
Latin names. I really enjoy reading them.

sometimes I joke with my students that they should do
the same thing, but they're too busy trying to learn
the concepts to bother with making up latin names for
the things they do. And of course, their teachers and
those who write books are much more stupid. They keep
using English words. If I were to write a book with
latin names I bet nobody would buy the book. That's
how ignorant and stupid they are.
