Cincinnati Zoo has a new baby Tamandua

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Cincinnati Zoo has a new addition to its family: A baby tamandua!

Isla, a southern tamandua, gave birth to her baby on Monday. The sex of the baby has yet to be determined. The baby also does not have a name yet.

Zoo officials say that both mom and baby are in good health and are bonding. The baby weighs nearly 350 grams.

Tamanduas, or lesser anteaters, have long snouts that can sniff out small insects like termites, bees, and, of course, ants.

In fact, tamanduas can eat about 9,000 ants daily!

The zoo welcomed another baby tamandua to its family back in December. His name is "Mani" which means peanut.
