Baby Porcupine Hangs Out With Mom
A new-born Porcupette (orange) is seen with mother Zoey. The cute critter is the newest arrival at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park in New York and has already won over enchanted staff. The porcupette was born on Father's Day, June 21. Weighing in at 400 grams, the baby has progressively gained weight since birth. Once the sex is determined, a name will be announced. For now, the young porcupine is being monitored by zoo staff and is bonding with mom, Zoey, and dad, Mattie.
