Belfast Zoo says 'HI' to a hyaena! Belfast Zoo has recently welcomed female striped hyaena, 'Lea', to the collection. Lea was transferred from Africa Alive! in Suffolk and the zoo is now one of only two zoos in the UK and Ireland to be home to this stunning species. Zoo manager, Mark Challis, said, "Our role as a modern zoo and conservation facility is becoming ever more important and as part of a collaborative breeding programme, Lea will soon be joined by a male hyaena.? Hyaena eat carrion and their jaws enable them to crush bones, teeth, horns and other body parts that other predators have left uneaten. The hyaena?s role as ?cleanup crew? is vital but what most people don?t realise is that the hyaena is also omnivorous and feeds opportunistically on a diet of fruit, seeds, leaves and insects. While spotted hyaenas are renowned for their ?laugh?, striped hyaenas are usually silent and use body language to communicate, for example, they raise the hair along their backs to make themselves appear intimidating to predators. Striped hyaena are currently classed as 'Near Threatened' on the IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species. This species faces many threats and is on the decline due to the belief they are responsible for livestock deaths and missing children. Photo Credit: @[128788347158994:274:Belfast Zoo]
