The Utica Zoo has just announced the birth of two African Crested Porcupines.

The pair of porcupines were born on April 14th to parents Kutarna and Daris. At their neonatal vet exam, they were determined to be a male and a female. The male is roughly 12 inches long and weighs in at 2.7 pounds while the female is 13 inches long and weighs 3.36 pounds.

The two newest additions to the zoo will be on exhibit soon once they get just a little larger.
