A new litter of piglets have been born at the Detroit Zoo, and they were all given names fit for kings, or at least the Game of Thrones royalty. 

“Hear that sounder?  It’s the pitter patter of little warthog hooves at the Detroit Zoo as four of five piglets born April 8, 2015, make their debut.  The smallest of the quintuplets is being cared for behind the scenes until he gains enough weight to join the rest of the group, called a sounder.


The piglets – females Daenerys, Sansa and Cersei, and males Tyrion and Hodor – are named after characters in the HBO fantasy drama “Game of Thrones”.  The four new arrivals can be seen in their habitat near the Africa Train Station.”
