Baby Aardvark To Be New Animal Ambassador At Busch Gardens

On March 26th, a bundle of joy was born at Busch Gardens - a baby aardvark! Aardvarks are difficult to find in zoos, and births in captivity are uncommon, so this rare occasion is cause for celebration!

The baby currently lives at Jambo Junction in the Nairobi section of the park, and will soon join its mother Izzy, father Friz, and year-old brother Zawadi in being an Animal Ambassador. The baby does look a little goofy now due to not having any hair yet, and as the sex cannot yet be detected, the baby hasn't been named.

You can visit the baby daily at Jambo Junction. Stop in and say hello to this adorable new addition to the Busch Gardens remarkable aardvark family!
