Especially after 2008, what could possibly be cuter than baby New Year?
ZooBorns is a website filled with pictures of the "newest and cutest exotic animal babies from zoos and aquariums around the world."
The site includes a new tree kangaroo joey and six small-clawed otters from the Bronx Zoo.
The Zoo winter baby boomlet also included a new Mongolian wild horse colt.
Out on Coney Island , the New York Aquarium has a walrus baby named Akituusaq. The aquarium's website is jammed with baby pictures and videos of the young walrus, who is only the sixth successful walrus birth in captivity.
