PHOTO NEWS RELEASEPeccary Babies Sniff New Digs

     Two Chacoan peccary babies sniff their new home at the San Diego Zoo this morning. These two peccaries were part of a litter of three born on June 19, adding to the current population of nine Chacoan peccaries currently at the Zoo.
     These youngsters can often be seen using their large circular snout to dig and root around their exhibit. Keepers say the babies have been staying close to each other and often play by running and jumping around together, a behavior known as frisky hopping.Photo taken on July 1, 2013, by Ken Bohn, San Diego Zoo.
