Chinese Meishan piglets

Berlin's Tierpark (that translates to "animal park," kids) welcomed 13 Chinese Meishan piglets on Sunday.  The Meishan breed, not surprisingly, is known for its wrinkled skin and long ears.

Are these the long-awaited exceptions that prove the "all-baby-animals-are-adorable" rule?  Perhaps.
