Female hyenas are both bigger and more powerful than their male counterparts. What else is special about the female hyena? She has a penis

Explanation

Amongst hyenas, it is the female who 'wears the trousers'. She is bigger, more powerful and more aggressive than her male counterpart. Female hyenas also have a pseudo-penis which is basically an enlarged clitoris. During mating, the male inserts his penis into the female's pseudo-penis. This is difficult for him, but nothing against how difficult it is for the female, who has to give birth through her pseudo-penis.
