We've seen a lot of cute animals at New York City's zoos this year: A tiny gibbon debuted at the Bronx Zoo in January, while adorable lambs showed up at the Prospect Park Zoo in April.

And now, the Queens Zoo has its own little critters—three mulefoot hogs, a rare type of domestic pig. The cute piggies are now on view on the zoo's farm. (Now we're just holding out hope that Mitik the baby walrus will make his public debut when the New York Aquarium reopens later this month.)
