New Born!

Good afternoon everyone… The hyenas den has a new addition, he/she was born about 4-5 weeks ago! We haven’t been in that area for a while, so it was great to see the other three cubs that was born about 4 months ago is growing up fast!¬†Spotted hyena cubs are born almost fully developed, with their eyes open and erupting incisors and canines, though lacking adult markings. They are totally black when born and only develop the spots after a about roughly 3-4 months. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!
