HOUSTON – A baby red river hog made his debut at the Houston Zoo Wednesday.
The Houston Zoo says the hoglet was born on April 9 to first-time mother Vidalia.
The red river hogs at the Houston Zoo share a habitat with two troops of western lowland gorillas in the Gorillas of the African Forest exhibit, which opened in 2015.
The yet-to-be-named hoglet can be seen in the dry riverbed of the habitat along with his mother, the other two adult hogs, Neptune and Luna, and nearly 1-year-old females Artemis and Ophelia.
The zoo said the animal's keepers will name the hoglet.
