BOISE -- There's a prickly new bundle of joy at Zoo Boise, and he doesn't even have a name.

Zookeepers say the baby porcupine -- properly called a porcupette -- was born on April 8th.

His parents are porcupines Zeus and Athena, who currently reside at the zoo.

The unnamed baby porcupette is the second of his kind to be born at Zoo Boise. Another baby porcupine, Olympus was born last July.
