BioPark announces gender of twin baby hyenas


Boys or girls? The Albuquerque BioPark has finally announced the genders of two of its newest residents. 

Zoo keepers used pumpkins filled with pink pudding to announce the gender of both cubs. 

The female twins Havoc and Ruckus were born on Aug. 8 to 10-year-old Smilla and 15-year-old Dubu. 

Because there is very little difference in the appearance of male and female hyenas, a genetic test had to be done to determine the genders.
