Busch Gardens Tampa in Florida has welcomed its newest member: a baby aardvark. The healthy baby is expected to grow to weigh more than eight stone within its first year of life.
This is the fourth baby born at the park born to parents Izzy and Friz. Aardvarks are solitary by nature and aardvark births are not common.
The cub, whose sex is unknown at this time, is receiving primary care from its mother and members of the animal care team. The baby is due to be in guest viewing in the coming weeks at Jambo Junction, located in the Nairobi area of Busch Gardens.
