We've seen pet hippo and pet rhino before on Neatorama, but this one takes the cake (so far): pet hyenas!
Faten Shwaykani and her son Noureddin play with pet hyenas at her house in the suburb of Garamana near Damascus June 27, 2007. Shwaykani's husband is a hunter of dangerous animals which he keeps at their house and farm.
Compare this to another "pet" hyena post we had previously: Badassitude. And also, did you know that hyenas have quite a strange mating habit?
