The Texas zoo announced the arrival with an adorable video that now has more than 13,000 views.

Houston Zoo said: “The yet-to-be-named hoglet can be seen frolicking in the dry riverbed of the habitat.”

The newborn hog also lives alongside two troops of western lowland gorillas, who the animals share a forest land with in their native Africa.
