As you can see from the picture, hyena paws are pretty massive (...although in the interest of full disclosure, I do have freakishly small hands).
Also, Kate wasn't kidding when she said hyenas have clean teeth—check out these pearly whites. As she mentioned, that's probably from all the bone they eat and chew. Compare them to the teeth of the male lion below—lions don't eat much bone at all, and this guy's teeth are noticeably more yellow because of it.
