This may be the cutest time ever at the Como Zoo.
There are a bunch of babies at the St. Paul zoo right now, including twin emperor tamarins, a baby Dall sheep, a baby giraffe, and a baby reindeer.
Here's a little information about each new resident at the zoo.
While doing rounds Tuesday morning, zookeepers discovered Lara the emperor tamarin had given birth to twins.
The unnamed twins mark Lara and her mate Roger's fifth and sixth babies. You can also see the twins' brothers Luke and Chewbacca (he's pictured above) at the zoo.
When these primates are born, they only weigh about 40 grams – about the size of a mini candy bar. When they grow up, they'll be 9-10.5 inches long (plus a 15-inch tail) and weigh about a pound.
The twins are "clinging well," the zoo says, but they're being taken off exhibit for a few days to bond with their parents.
Como Zoo says it's not clear what gender they are yet, and it can take several weeks for zookeepers to figure that out.
Emperor tamarins – you can tell which ones they are by their long, white mustaches – are rare in zoos, with Como saying there are only 28 of them currently in zoos in the U.S.
A baby girl sheep
The zoo's Dall sheep Storm and Thunder welcomed a baby girl last week (Aug. 2), and she's growing up fast.
The zoo says the little sheep – who doesn't yet have a name – is now scampering around her exhibit with her parents and 1-year-old sister Rainy.
Both male and female Dall sheep have curved horns, although the guys' horns get a lot bigger. You can tell how old the sheep is by counting the growth rings on the horns.
The baby giraffe has a name
Violet was born on July 21, and now she weighs 150 pounds and stands nearly 6 feet tall.
She made her public debut last weekend, so you can catch her and her mom inside the giraffe exhibit.
Baby reindeer gets a name, too
The baby reindeer that was born on April 26 now has a name.
The family who won an auction at Como Friends Sunset Affair Gala chose to name the reindeer Forest.
He's still noticeably smaller than the adults, weighing probably about 100 pounds (when reindeers are fully grown, they can weigh as much as 400 pounds).
