Hyenas may have been the bad guys in The Lion King, but Busch Gardens says the 20-week-old baby spotted hyena born at the park on April 3 is a sweet boy. The baby hyena, debuting this week to park visitors in the Edge of Africa area, is named “Mandazi” for his sweet personality after a traditional pastry found on the Swahili coast, a park news release says. The cub is healthy and being cared for by first-time mother 8-year-old Taziki, who was also born at Busch Gardens. (Aug. 25, 2016) Video provided by Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
