The little anteater was born on January 12 to mom DJ and father EJ. He's named MJ, because while the Staten Island Zoo people seem to have a good sense of how to execute on social media, they're apparently less creative when it comes to how letters fit together.
ZooBorns did its own post with a bunch of pictures and lots more information. It turns out that Tamanduas are found in "Central and South America west of the Andes," that they live largely alone, that they're most active at night, and that they spend a good chunk of their time in trees snacking on ants and termites. They're also self-evidently very cute. There's even a full ZooBorns photo gallery documenting said cuteness here
Entrance to the Staten Island Zoo is $8 and the hours are here. There's going to be a brief lull in below-freezing temperatures early next week. Why not leave the house?
