Each year there are new baby animals born of all different species at zoos around the world. Here in central Illinois, there was a special birth at the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington.
Zoo superintendent Jay Tetzloff says one of the births earlier this April was only the second in the zoo's history.
Tetzloff adds there was also another birth just shortly after the new Lemar.
Being able to provide interesting animals not only for zoo patrons but also giving these animals a place to live is a big part of the mission at Miller Park Zoo.
