Get ready to squee: Woodland Park Zoo has a new porcupette

Today, the Woodland Park Zoo ruined productivity in the greater Seattle area by announcing the birth of their newest adorable baby animal, the porcupette, which is a real word and one that you must now use every single day for the rest of your life. They announced the birth with the following photos, which are incredible.

The porcupette was something of a surprise, because the zookeepers at Woodland Park hadn't realized that their male had reached sexual maturity. 

You can read up about the porcupette on their blog, which is very informative.
