According to the Dublin Zoo, the piglets remained close to their mom for the first week but over the past few days have started to explore their new surroundings.

As if ten little piggies wasn't enough, the zoo welcomed another newborn in 2012: Bella, Family Farm's Friesian cow, gave birth to a healthy male calf.
