Monarto Zoo's Spotted Hyena Mom Kigali and her daughter Forest both gave birth recently to healthy cubs. They are the only female Spotted Hyena in Australia. Kigali is the dominant female of the clan. Her cub, named Pinduli, was born.
Hyenas have a variety of vocal sounds including wailing calls, howling screams, and what we know as a sound similar to "laughter" which is used to alert other clan members of a source of food. Learn more about this highly vocal and resourceful carnivore!
