The Mom's name is O'Malley, the Dad's name is Orlando, and they have a daughter named Ling Ling.
Their new baby girl is just one of the many babies born here this season. She will join our new Miniature Sicilian donkey "Donkey-Odie", baby alpaca "Cocoa," and baby llama "Llama Bean," in Farmland's Animal Showcase.
