HOUSTON - Baby fever has hit the Houston Zoo.
“They are the first Red River hogs to be born here at the Houston Zoo,” said Memory Mays with the Houston Zoo.
The newest bundles of joy sparking an air of buzz and excitement.
“We love to see the babies. I can’t believe how many there are,” one visitor said.
“They’re very entertaining to watch. They’re constantly moving around.” Mays said.
You can find the little ones co-habituating with the gorillas at the zoo’s African Forest habitat.

Nearby, there's another newborn cutie.
Meet baby Gus, a 2-month-old warthog, who, according to 6-year-old Asher Todd, is living the life.
“I’m just saying, they have a really good home to live in, they could live in here forever," Asher said.
Now to some adorable babies you won’t find on display just yet.
To start, this adorable California sea lion pup born last week.
“This is the second time we’ve had a sea lion born here,” Mays said.
Adding to the watery bunch, some baby white botched river stingrays.

And rounding out the zoo’s baby boom, the biggest baby of them all, a nearly 300-pound Asian elephant expected to be born any day now.
“It’s definitely going to be the big talk once that happens,” Mays said.
Zoo workers say baby animals not on display right now are expected to be in the next two months.
