Real World ConnectionsEdit
Pachycrocuta was a genus of prehistoric hyenas. The largest and most well-researched species was the giant hyena Pachycrocuta brevirostris, which may have weighed up to 190 kg (420 lb), this would make it the largest hyena to have ever lived. It lived between the Middle Pliocene and the Middle Pleistocene, about 3 million to 500,000 years ago. Bones of Homo Erectus were commonly found next to these giant hyenas noting that Homo Erectus were hunted usually.
