Among the newest additions are three demoiselle cranes and five Chinese big-headed turtles. The Queens Zoo just welcomed a baby southern pudu, who won't ever grow bigger than 14 inches (stop it). Four California sea lions made their way to the Queens and Prospect Park Zoos, and one female was recently born at the Bronx Zoo. Most exciting, though, is the addition of snow leopard cubs at the Central Park Zoo.
While a report on zoo babies may not feel like the most pressing news item of your day, may we remind you that there is nothing more timely than zoo babies. After all, they're only babies for a short while, so be sure to catch them while they're still cute and cuddly. (The New York Times)
