OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma City Zoo has announced the birth of three red river hog piglets, born this week to mom Divit and dad Sir David Pigglesworth III.

Zoo guests may visit the red river hogs at their habitat, located next to the giraffe exhibit. The piglets will have access to the outdoor yard from approximately 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day but will also have access to an indoor, off-exhibit area.

"We are very excited about the birth of these red river hogs," said Mammals Curator Laura Bottaro. "They are a fun and fascinating species and a favorite of many Zoo visitors."
