A newborn aardvark

The Detroit Zoo welcomed a baby aardvark this month, born at 1:05 a.m. Dec. 8 to mother Rachaael and father Mchimbaji.
“This baby can only be described as hideously cute,” said Director of Conservation and Animal Welfare Scott Carter. Since the birth, Amani has more than doubled in size. Adult aardvarks can weigh from 90 to 145 pounds and grow 5 to 6 feet in length.
