A group of newborn animals brought a new look recently to Harbin Northeast Forest Zoo in Heilongjiang province. As of late May, 47 babies of 12 species of animals have been born at the zoo, including wolves, red-crowned cranes, brown bears, porcupines and monkeys.
"These cute baby animals will welcome their first visitors on International Children's Day on June 1," said Li Xiuyun, head of the zoo's animal management department. "With the coming of the animal baby boom season, more newborns are expected between mid-June and early July."[ Editor: SRQ ]
