Video/photo: Baby anteater at Riga Zoo

Last year a baby southern tamandua (collared anteater) was born at the Riga Zoo to two proud parents - Larry and Mary - in what was the first time an anteater was born at the zoo. The tiny thing is now big enough so that visitors have a good chance to see it, reported the Riga Zoo Wednesday.

Here's a video showing the baby anteater, which always keeps close to its mother. 

Though the baby was born on November 28 last year, only now has it become realistic for visitors to come see the tiny creature.

There are about 150 collared anteaters at zoos across the world. The pair at the Riga Zoo was taken here in 2015 from Guyana.
