A spined hyena is a big toothy quadruped with a long row of spines down its back.
Spined hyenas are moderately smart, can speak in the voice of any creature they have heard in the past 24 hours, and know every language. They survive on an organic diet of half the normal size, but can only digest brains; thus, they are often found digging up the corpses of large-brained creatures.
