But just like all babies, there’s nap time.
Take a peek at the wolf pups, lynx kittens and porcupette that are now at the Minnesota Zoo.
“In Minnesota we are really fortunate to have diverse wildlife, and as a result because of our climates sometimes the babies we have born earlier in the year they need a little bit of time to grow before they’re able to be on exhibit,” zoo keeper, Adam Keniger, said.
Keniger, the Zoo Keeper, says the best time to visit the zoo is right away in the morning, around 9:30 a.m.READ MORE: MDH: Salmonella Outbreak Linked To Salame Sticks Sold At Trader Joe's
“So we’ve got wolves, we’ve got baby lynx, we’ve got baby porcupines, which are called porcupettes and we have a baby beaver as well,” Keniger said.
That’s when the babies are really rambunctious.
We have great news for parents.
Saturday, your babies can see the babies for free from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
