CINCINNATI, Ohio - If you've never seen a baby anteater before, you're in luck!
The Cincinnati Zoo welcomed a baby tamandua around Christmas. According to the zoo, the baby was born on December 20.
Although the baby was born several weeks ago, the gender is still unknown at this time. Because of this, the zoo has not named the baby yet.
In a post made on The Cincinnati Zoo's Instagram page, the baby and his/her mother, Isla, are doing great and are healthy.
Rest up little one! Mom Isla and her baby tamandua are doing great and bonding behind the scenes! Tamanduas are anteaters and use their long snouts to sniff out ant, termite and bee colonies. Long claws enable them to dig into nests, and a long sticky tongue licks up the insects. A single tamandua can eat up to 9,000 ants in a single day!
