SifakaWe took a mini-zoocation south to the Philadelphia Zoo on one of the coldest days of the season.  We essentially had the entire zoo to ourselves. It was a great day filled with wonderfully active animals and we caught sight of our first Prehensile-tailed  porcupine baby, called a porcupette.  Check out the video below today’s montage. If you subscribe to my weekly photos (and get them in your in-box) you are probably not able to view my videos from your inbox image.  Just scroll up and click on the blue link (which is the name of today’s send) and it will take you back to my ‘While at the Zoo’ website where you can watch today’s video selection and see the adorable porcupette and it’s parents.

I’ve never actually seen a baby prehensile tail porcupine. We have an adult one, named Wednesday, at BZ who is one of my favorites. That porcupette is absolutely adorable. Wednesday has some serious competition : )
