The New Year's babies in Boston are about two feet long -- and green. The births weren't in a hospital delivery room, but at the New England Aquarium. Officials there report an anaconda named Ashley gave birth early New Year's Day to 14 baby snakes. The experts say such births in captivity are somewhat rare. It's the aquarium's first anaconda mamma. The little snakes will stay in Boston for at least a month before they are offered to other aquariums and zoos.
