The award-winning Cape May County Zoo is welcoming new babies to one of my favorite places in New Jersey.

Cape May County Zoo is one of the best zoos in the country.

Cape May County Zoo is always free and opens every day except for Christmas day. Winter Zoo Hours are 10:00 am - 3:30 pm and hours for spring and summer will be available soon.

The zoo is welcoming new and adorable capybara babies. It's the second litter born at the zoo within a couple of monts to Mommy, Budette. If you remember, recently the Cape May County Zoo asked everyone to name the new babies. Maybe they'll do it with these little ones, too.

Here's the zoo's announcement on Facebook:

Capybaras are the world's largest rodent species. Budette lives with her mate Mikey and Daddy of these adorable babies. Just a couple of months ago Budette and Mikey had a litter of cutie babies new to the Cape May Zoo.

If you've never been to the Cape May Zoo, you will absolutely love it. It is free and because of everyone's donations entering through the gate, they can be free for everybody.  Make it a whole day of family fun. There are picnic tables and a park.
