MUST SEE: Baby porcupine is born

Chicago (CNN)- Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?

The Brookfield Zoo in Chicago just welcomed one and we are on pins and needles. The baby was born on July 2nd. It is the first of its kind to be born at the zoo and has yet to be named. Did you know a newborn porcupine’s quills are soft at birth, but typically harden within a few days? Also, get this, baby porcupines are actually called "porcupettes". How cute is that?
