Connecticut’s Mystic Aquarium has announced the birth of two African baby penguins!
The chicks hatched on February 1 and February 10 and are growing VERY quickly.
No word yet on what gender the baby penguins are. That can only be determined by a given DNA test when they are about six months old.
African Penguins are an endangered species, and their breeding is managed by the Species Survival Plan. And obviously they are dong one heck of a job!!!

There is a first time of everything CUTEz! Even when it takes 82 years!!!
A baby Indian elephant is thriving after greeting the world after its birth Monday. This marks the first EVA elephant birth at the Prague Zoo.
The little one is currently nursing from its mama as the zoo's elephant herd continues to expand.
Prague Zoo plans to open its large mammal habitat (especially created for the elephants) on March 30 so patrons will have to wait to see this cutie until then…
OOOOOooooooh…we want to see this babe now!!! Looks like we're going to have to sneak into the Prague Zoo now…
TO THE CZECH REPUBLIC! LOLz!

Have you ever heard on a okapi?!?!?! We sure haven't but we're madly in love with this little one!
Parents Zack and Betty welcomed this bundle of CUTEness in early January and the three week old is already 96 pounds!
There are only 100 okapis in captivity in the States, and they are currently listed as "Threatened" on the endangered species list.
This calf is the zoo's first birth of 2013 and we're sure the zoo will love having this new addition!
Congrats on the beautiful babe, Lowry Park!

Animal rights activists are furious with the monkey experiments being done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and because of their anger, a debate was called and is being led by Jane Velez-Mitchell.
The tests that have the activists in a frenzy are being performed on Rhesus Monkeys. During the experiments, the babies are taken from their moms at birth and are then put through several observations that whip up fear or anxiety.
But that's not even the worst part.

A new baby boy giraffe has made its way into the world, and we can't stop saying AWWWWWWWW!!
The calf was born last week at the Brookfield Zoo to a 6-foot-2 mama named Arneita, which marks the zoo's 58th giraffe birth.
Crazily enough, the 140-pound baby was DROPPED five feet from his mommy during the birthing process, but was on his feet in only 30 minutes!!
Unfortunately, the little cupcake doesn't have a name yet, but we're just excited to see that he was born into the world happy and healthy!!!
The mom and son duo can be seen at the Habitat Africa! the Savannah Exhibit right now, but if you don't have a chance to get to the zoo, check out the video (above)!
