Awwwww: Newborn giant anteater at Busch Gardens
Maybe someday he'll have a face only a Momma could love but for now, he is awwwwww-fully cute. This new giant anteater was born at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay on Dec. 23. He weighed about 3 pounds at birth and will ride mom Adelhi's back for about four months before he is ready to walk. Can you imagine if your little ones started walking at 4 months? Yipes!
Giant anteaters tear apart logs and anthills searching for insects -- they eat up to 30,000 bugs a day. They eat the insects with their tongues that can reach up to 2 feet long. Even Gene Simmons would appreciate that.
