Rediscovering The Lion King
Some other facts you probably didn’t know about The Lion King include the unjust representation of the hyenas. As we know, both Kimba and Simba portrayed a rather unflattering image of a gang of hyenas which gave them a pretty bad reputation.
What you probably didn’t know is that hyenas are a rather smart and competent animal, not a slimy scavenger as their portrayal suggests. Hyena biologists protested and sued Disney studios for this undeserved representation, and another researcher encouraged boycotting the film to help preserve hyenas in the wild.
