Two liters of Chacoan peccary pups were born in late October at the San Francisco Zoo. All six of them are now ready for their public debut—and they are just about the cutest things we have ever seen. See for yourself in the slideshow above.

The endangered Chacoan peccary is found in Paraguay, Bolivia, and Argentina. The species was originally discovered in fossil form, and thought to have gone extinct, before live ones were found in 1975. 

The peccary pups are ready for viewing at the San Francisco Zoo now.
