The endangered African wild pups born last fall at Brookfield Zoo are now on exhibit.

The 10 pups, six males and four females, have been off exhibit since their birth on Thanksgiving Day. They can now be seen at the zoo's African savannah habitat, along with mom Kim, dad Digger, and Digger's brother Duke.

Meet more newborns at Chicago's zoos!

There are babies aplenty awaiting springtime zoogoers. Come meet the little fellas.

The zoo was one of only three in North America to have a litter in 2010, and this is the zoo's third successful litter, following a five-pup litter in 1998 and a four-pup litter in 2000.

The Brookfield Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information.
