Young giant anteater born in Amsterdam zoo


On 5 February 2016, a young giant anteater, shown in this video, was born in Artis zoo in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

This is the fifth baby giant anteater born in Artis since 2008. Artis plays a role in an international program to conserve this rare species. As it is still cold outside, the anteater mother and her young will stay inside for the time being.

On 16 February, a young vicuña was born in the same South American animals compound in Artis. The vicuña was born outside, as these mountain animals are more used to cold than anteaters are.
