Baby hyena born March 16, 2005 at Denver Zoo. One spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta) was born to mother, Ngozi (Nuh-Go-Zee) and father, Kibo (Kee-boe) on March 16 at approximately 10:15 a.m. This is the first of this species born at Denver Zoo since 1987. The hyena cub weighed approximately three pounds at birth. Zookeepers have not identified the sex of the newborn, yet. The cub is bonding with mother, Ngozi (Nuh-Go-Zee), behind the scenes in a private maternity den in Predator Ridge and is not on public exhibit. A closed circuit video feed shows the hyena being cared for by his mother behind the scenes in the exhibit. (photo provided by Denver Zoo)
