Baby peccaries' first time out

Check out the baby peccaries!

Check out these baby peccaries making their first public appearance at San Diego Zoo in America.

The little pig-like mammals have been taking in the new smells and sounds of the zoo where they'll live.

Peccaries use their large snout to dig and root around and youngsters often play together by leaping around and running in circles.

But as they're still very young, mum and dad are very protective.

Their zookeeper said: "A lot of times they will walk in front of the babies so you can't see them."

"They will stop and stare at anything that's strange and if they're feeling really nervous they'll get the whole family to run to the back of the exhibit."
