Was assigned to the zoo hospital dept today, and had the chance of following the zoo veterinarian and other veterinary staff on their rounds around the zoo after the morning chores. It was my lucky day, I suppose, as we had guest officers from Hamilton Zoo, NZ, visiting Zoo Negara.... So I had the wonderful privilege then to meet these three lovely female juvenile striped hyenas (Hyaena hyaena), and show them to our guests.

Pinkie, Yellow and Blu were personally hand-reared and raised by our zoo veterinarian, Dr Blanca. It was just great being able to see Dr Blanca (the woman in the light brown cap with the camera) and the close bond she shared with these animals, and how much love and devotion she had poured into them. Had so much fun having playtime with them, chasing them and running with them, and handfed them eagerly with some special cake we made for them. It was incredible how these large, powerful animals could also be so gentle and loving.
