Baby Aardvark Born at Busch Gardens In Tampa




Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL recently welcomed a baby aardvark as their latest resident. It turns out that aardvarks are fairly rare and there are only around 35 of them in zoos in North America.

With fewer than a dozen successful births each year, aardvark births are not common. They are solitary by nature, only Busch Gardens is home to a male and female, with the cub making three. He will be raised in Jambo Junction – located in the Nairobi area of the park – and will become one of the park’s educational Animal Ambassadors.
