About the Species

This specimen is the skull and mandible of an adult hyaena of unknown sex. It was collected by Tom Larson in Kamanjab, Kaokoveld, Outjo District, Namibia on 23 October 1947. It was made available to The University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility for scanning by Dr. Blaire Van Valkenburgh of The University of California Los Angeles Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Funding for scanning was provided by Dr. Van Valkenburgh and by a National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. Timothy Rowe of The University of Texas at Austin. This hyaena is one of several carnivorans included in ongoing research of respiratory turbinates by Dr. Van Valkenburgh.
