Spotted hyenas exhibit

This is the second part of the exhibit : added in 2009 if I am right. It's an open space with grass and water (contrary to the first part - the old one - wooded with sand on the ground). It houses a herd of ten hyenas approximately.

      Bravo on uploading more photos from this intriguing zoo! I'd heard from someone that recently visited that there were many hyenas, but how many are on exhibit at one time?

      I don't know exactly the number of hyenas now. During my last visit (february), I just saw some of them. If you look at ISIS there are 3.8 spotted hyenas. Normally, they are all on exhibit : the major group with nine hyenas and a second group consisted of two isolated animals (the oldest) in another enclosure.

      I remember a visit two years ago where I saw ten or eleven hyenas in the house of the major enclosure (very small for such a number of hyenas).
