Maya has some excellent internal tools for creating hair and fur, most recently Xgen offers interactive grooming and instancing that makes it ideal for creating hair, fur, feathers and more. Peregrine Labs Yeti provides a node-based toolset for instancing geometry and takes on a slightly different workflow.
