In November last year, two Spotted Hyaena cubs were born to mum Forest. Now, nearly six months later, and with their spots clearly visible they need a name!

Keepers have shortlisted a selection of fitting names for the girls, but we need your help choosing.

Not shy of causing a little bit of trouble, the two cubs recently climbed into a feeding chute mounted on a gate. As keepers watched on, the two managed to wriggle free and tumble unharmed to the ground while mum Forest looked on.

The young cubs have recently started exploring their exhibit but are keeping close to mum making viewing difficult. Eagle eyed visitors might get a glimpse of the little fur balls but the best chance of seeing them is by participating in Monarto Safari Park’s Lions at Bedtime tour.

Vote for your favourite names below for your chance to win a double pass to Monarto Safari Park!

Hurry, competition ends Wednesday, 21 April 2021.
