CINCINNATI -- From cute and furry to creepy and crawly, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is showcasing its newest members throughout the month of May.
Bonobos, takins, giant walking sticks, gorillas and emperor scorpions are just a few of the species featured with large pink and blue signs throughout the zoo for visitors to identify them.
While baby animals are born throughout the year at the zoo, this year's zoo baby season celebrates some of its recent "celebrity" births. The first being Bowie, a female little blue penguin born on Jan. 8, 2016, who made headlines for sharing a birthday with her namesake — late music icon David Bowie.
The zoo's three famous cheetah cubs were born prematurely in March via C-section and are still receiving critical care with help from nursery dog Blakely. A fourth cheetah cub was introduced to the nursery last month from Wildlife Safari in Oregon after his mother stopped producing milk for him. Blakely also took this cub under his wing and plays with him daily in the nursery.
There's a wide variety of zoo babies not to be missed this year.
Check out the photos and video below for a look at some of this year's additions.
