Busch Gardens welcomed a Southern tamandua on April 13. Tamanduas are also known as lesser anteaters. The baby tamandua, or pup, will spend the next several months riding on its mother’s back. Both mother and pup are currently under the watch of the Busch Gardens’ animal care team behind the scenes.
In the wild, tamanduas live in Central and South America.
