BROOKLYN — Three little piggies have a new home in Brooklyn.

The young piglets have joined the family of the Prospect Park Zoo, it announced this week.

The three siblings — two males and a female — are “Juliana” pigs, sometimes known as teacup pigs or pocket pigs for their miniature size. The pigs will grow to no more than 65 pounds as adults, the zoo said.

The zoo released a video of the pigs on Thursday showing the little guys snuffling around a grassy lawn, eating some greens and showing their snouts to the camera.

The Juliana pigs will join the zoo’s barn area where visitors are allowed to pet and feed gentle animals like alpacas, sheep and chickens.

The new members of the zoo are one of several summertime attractions for kids at the facility. Kids and caregivers are invited to join “Conservation Kids” activities every day of the week, including wildlife storytelling, animal-inspired arts and crafts and “old time games” on Fridays. Summer programming runs through August 30.

The Prospect Park Zoo is open at 450 Flatbush Ave. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Tickets cost $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for kids. Children under 2 years old get in free. For more information, visit the zoo’s website.
