Ictitherium is an extinct genus of hyena.
Ictitherium was around 1.2 metres (4 ft) long, and looked more like a civet than a modern hyena, possessing a long body with short legs. Judging from its teeth, it was an insectivore. Ictitherium was a very successful and abdundant creature, with multiple fossils often often being found at a single site. Possibly, this early hyena lived in packs and had a social order, much like its modern descendants.
