Aardvark born at Busch Gardens in Tampa
Aardvark born is third birth for parents
Busch Gardens in Tampa has a new baby aardvark.
The infant was born Feb. 6, but keepers still don't know its sex.
Busch Gardens says the healthy baby is expected to grow to more than 120 pounds within its first year of life. Aardvarks are solitary by nature, and aardvark births are not common.
The baby is the third birth for parents Izzy and Friz. The new infant's sister Adazee will celebrate her first birthday March 26, and its brother Zawadi will celebrate his second April 10.
The baby is receiving primary care from its mother and additional care from keepers.
