Adorable, prickly new baby porcupine is born and thriving at a Chicago zoo

Brookfield Zoo has a new member, a cute little porcupine.

Lucia is the 9-year-old mother of this little porcupine.

She could not take care of her cub alone, so this zoo took care of it.

Nothing is known about the little porcupine yet, but these people are trying very hard to provide him with all the help and care he needs.

After a while, they will try to wean this little creature off bottle feeding.

This cub’s progress is going very well thanks to the experts he is surrounded by.
