Ed. Note: Porcupette is my new favorite word.
From the National Zoo:
“The Small Mammal House welcomed a prehensile-tailed porcupette yesterday afternoon! The baby appears to be doing well and is nursing. The porcupette will stay on exhibit with parents Bess and Clark for several months. We don’t know yet if our porcupette is a male or female.”
