Origins[ edit ] Hyenas originated in the jungles of Miocene Eurasia 22 million years ago, when most early feliform species were still largely arboreal. The first ancestral hyenas were likely similar to the modern banded palm civet ; one of the earliest hyena species described, Plioviverrops , was a lithe, civet-like animal that inhabited Eurasia 20—22 million years ago, and is identifiable as a hyaenid by the structure of the middle ear and dentition. The lineage of Plioviverrops prospered, and gave rise to descendants with longer legs and more pointed jaws, a direction similar to that taken by canids in North America. American Museum of Natural History The descendants of Plioviverrops reached their peak 15 million years ago, with more than 30 species having been identified. Unlike most modern hyena species, which are specialised bone-crushers, these dog-like hyenas were nimble-bodied, wolfish animals; one species among them was Ictitherium viverrinum, which was similar to a jackal. The dog-like hyenas were very numerous; in some Miocene fossil sites, the remains of Ictitherium and other dog-like hyenas outnumber those of all other carnivores combined. The decline of the dog-like hyenas began 5—7 million years ago during a period of climate change, which was exacerbated when canids crossed the Bering land bridge to Eurasia. One species, Chasmaporthetes ossifragus , managed to cross the land bridge into North America, being the only hyena to do so. Chasmopothertes managed to survive for some time in North America by deviating from the cursorial and bone-crushing niches monopolised by canids, and developing into a cheetah -like sprinter. Most of the dog-like hyenas had died off by 1.

Joan Edwards says landlords around the city aren’t interested in providing her a home all the while she holds tight to her pets.

Ex-dog groomer Joan, of Acklington Place, was recently forced to sell her two-bed home after finding out her late partner was only paying back interest on their mortgage – and she needed to cough up a lump sum to stay. She’d hoped finding a new pad would be fairly easy – but instead the property search has turned into her worst nightmare.

Now she’s worried about the prospect of being turfed out in the cold in four weeks time – when the new owners move in. Speaking to Plymouth Live , Joan said: I’m worried I’m going to be left homeless.
