WILD WEDNESDAY: capybara and…tamandua?!
A group of Southern Tamanduas was imported to the United States last August as part of an effort to bolster the population in US zoos. A pair named Olive and Brutus were placed at the Buffalo Zoo.
Not much is known about the reproductive behaviors of this species, but Olive and Brutus had their first pup on April 7. The male baby, named Otis, is strong, alert and very vocal.
See and learn more about this rare species at ZooBorns.
Anteaters are the best at sticking their tongues out at adults.
