    • Buffy: Wow. Apparently Noah rejected the hyenas from the ark, because he thought they were an evil, impure mixture of dogs and cats.
      This a reference to the famous story of Noah and the Ark from the Book of Genesis. In the story God instructs Noah to build a large ark and fill it with two representatives of every species of animal and bird. The story that Noah rejected them came from Sir Walter Raleigh's "History of the World". Raleigh wrote that hyenas could be reproduced later by crossing dogs with cats and were not necessary to preserve on the Ark
