Surprise porcupine twins at Belgian zoo

The babies are the first born at the zoo in 25 years, after a successful pairing between their parents, Stekeltje and Loki.

Staff at Planckendael Zoo do not yet know the sex of the new arrivals as they are letting the family rest but said in a statement that in accordance with tradition their names would start with a W, like all their animals born in 2021.
