    Busch Gardens welcomed its newest resident earlier this week: an aardvark born Monday 26th March. The healthy baby weighs about 4.8lbs and is expected to grow to more than 120lbs within its first year.

    It is currently living behind the scenes at Jambo Junction – located in the Nairobi area of the park – and is receiving care from members of the animal care team.


    The baby will join mom “Izzyâ€￾ and dad “Frizâ€￾ in the upcoming weeks and will be an Animal Ambassador for the park, along with its older brother “Zawadi,â€￾ who will be a year old on April 10.

    There are fewer than 40 aardvarks in zoos in North America. They are solitary by nature, and aardvark births are not common.
