Another boy! 9-13-12
The Zoo welcomes a baby tamandua (lesser anteater) named “Quito,” born on August 30th, 2012. Tamandua are not on exhibit at the Zoo, but his parents occasionally come out for scheduled presentations. Check the event board in the front plaza when you arrive for your visit!
Animal Care Supervisor Leslie puts “Quito” the tamandua baby on a stuffed bear for stability when he is given his medical checkups. The rest of the time he clings tightly to his mom, just like tamandua in the wild.
