By now you've probably heard the news - two Sichuan takins, large goat antelopes, were born at the LIncoln Park Zoo on January 31 and February 9.
The lumbering, cloven-hoofed beasts certainly have their charms, but on Valentine's Day, we wonder, are takins for lovers?
One zoo employee seems to think so.
"A pair of healthy takin baby boys is way better than candy and roses," said General Curator Dave Bernier, who serves at the Species Survival Plan (SSP) Coordinator for the Sichuan takin across North American zoos, in a statement from the zoo. "It is great to have two youngsters at the same time for the animals' social development, and we can look forward to some exciting play behavior in the near future."
Here's to takin' about - and having - a good time with these little guys. You can help name them here.
