It’s every mama hyenas’ dream to have offspring that misbehaves. She infuses her cubs with a hormone boost which elevates aggressiveness and increases its chances of survival, providing inspiration to the young males to mount the females as early and as often as desired. This ensures that the female hyena’s genetic information survives, as well as allowing the males to bring their A-game when performing their tricky mating dance. Achieving success when mating takes time and practice, as it requires strategic positioning for the male to crouch behind the females, inserting his penis to point up and backward to enter her clitoris. Unfortunately for the males, the females are more muscular and aggressive, ultimately wearing the pants in this relationship.
