This is no ‘laughing’ matter! Colchester Zoo is the only zoo in the UK where you can meet spotted hyenas.
You’ll meet these curious carnivores and hear about the important role they play out in the wild.
FACT! Did you know that during the final stages of an alpha female hyena’s pregnancy, she passes on high levels of different hormones to her pups, including Androgen, to help prepare them for life as a high-ranking hyena!
