Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Keeps Bringing on the Babies, This Time With a New Reindeer Calf


  • Photo via
As seen above, an utterly adorable sloth bear cub joined the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo ranks in March. This month, we have a baby reindeer.

Born to Petunia and Bumble on April 3, let's hope the still unnamed animal gets an adorable name like its proud parents.

So far the calf has already been spotted checking out the grass in the Wilderness Trek exhibit alongside mom, dad and other reindeer. It's unclear how many reindeer games it has already learned to play.

Reindeer can begin to grow antlers within their first year of life, and clearly do not always live in the North Pole.
