An adorable spotted hyena cub was born in Monarto Safari Park in South Australia at the end of August, Zoos SA said.
Zoos SA said the cub was born to 14-year-old mom Forest and 19-year-old dad Gamba. It said spotted hyena cubs are born with a black or brown coat, a full set of teeth, and their eyes open. It explained it is “notoriously difficult” to tell the sex of a spotted hyena.
Zoos SA released footage of the cub in the safari park.
Assistant Curator of Ungulates and Carnivores Jon Allon said keepers have gotten a few glimpses of the cub. “Forest has brought her cub out of the den a few times, so we’ve been able to see the little one and monitor how both the cub and mum are doing,” he said. Credit: Zoos SA via Storyful
