Hi Twitter!
I'm Raha.
I was alpha female of the Lemala clan for 12yrs. Now my daughter Timba has taken over.

Our outer labiae are fused + filled with tissue to form a 'pseudoscrotum' and our pseudopenis looks like a male penis when erected.

Luckily, @HyenaProject created a cool manual to sex us. 👇
