Newborn giant anteater introduced at Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Sri Racha

Sri Racha

Khao Kheow Open Zoo recently welcomed its newest endangered giant anteater to the family.

The director of Khao Kheow Open Zoo Tewin Rattanawongsawat stated that Khao Kheow Open Zoo just held a party to celebrate the birth of a giant anteater, the largest of the four anteater species that are currently at risk of extinction.

The baby anteater was born on June 1st, 2022, to a mother named “Singapore” and a father named “San Diego”. According to Tewin, he still has not been able to determine the sex of the anteater yet because it is always attached to its mother.

“The baby anteater always clings to its mother’s back, so we could not tell its sex,” Tewin stated. “But after eight months, it will get down and walk on its own.”

The baby anteater is one month and thirteen days old and is in good health. It is also the sixth member of the giant anteater family at Khao Kheow Open Zoo. The zoo director invited people who are interested in having a close interaction with this baby anteater to visit Khao Kheow Open Zoo’s Wildlife Wonderland section during this five-day-long weekend.
