This complete skull of a hyaena was found at East Turkana on the Karari Ridge in area 113. This hyaena has premolars that are adapted to bone cracking although this adaptation is more developed in the modern day spotted hyaena, Crocuta crocuta. This skull belonged to a smaller hyaena that is more like the modern day striped hyaena, Hyaena hyaena, in its morphology.  Complete carnivore skulls such as this one are rare in the fossil record, but this skull is also associated with much of the skeleton too.


The specimens displayed on this site are published specimens unless otherwise indicated. The information about the artifacts on this site is of a general nature only and unless otherwise indicated, has been written either by members of the African Fossils team, the National Museums of Kenya or the Turkana Basin Institute. The printed models are not of a high enough resolution to enable accurate scientific measurements and have generated using photogrammetry and in some cases low resolution digital models have been generated using laser scanners.
