Baby porcupine born at Chicago Zoo

Brookfield Zoo near Chicago says its newest addition is a baby prehensile-tailed porcupine, or porcupette.

The male baby was born July 2 and zookeepers are caring for him by hand because his mother wouldn't allow him to nurse.

This is the first of the species born at the zoo, where his parents are members of the Animal Ambassadors Program.
