Watch out friends, there's some new kids in town and they're taking over.

The Utica Zoo has announced the arrival of the new "kids" aka baby goats that were born last week on the property, and MAN, are they cute.

The Nigerian Dwarf Goat babies were born on the Peaceful Hollow Farm in Barneveld, New York on Wednesday, May 5, and now reside in the Children's Zoo's main barn.

The Utica Zoo is open daily from 10 AM to 4:30 PM. Don't forget your face mask. "Masks are still required, for visitors, staff, and animal safety. There have been confirmed cases of COVID in animals in other zoos so we will continue to take these precautions."
