Crocotta Pictures

The crocotta is a mythical dog-wolf of India or Ethiopia, said to be a deadly enemy of men and dogs.

The scientific name of the spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta) was taken from the mythological Crocotta, and there are some similarities in the description. Hyena do have very powerful teeth and jaws and can digest a wide range of foods. They are known to dig up human bodies for food, and can make unnervingly human-like vocalizations (such as their famous laugh).
