Say hello to London Zoo's newest addition - an adorable baby giant anteater.
The little one, who was born during last month’s storm Aileen, even has a lightning strike marking on its fluffy coat.
The now six-week-old giant anteater was born overnight during the storm, with zookeepers making the wonderful discovery the following morning.
Now, mum Inca has taken her newborn outside for the first time, introducing the youngster to its home and big sister Beanie.
ZSL (Zoological Society of London) London zookeeper, Amy Heath said: "I was delighted to see a healthy pup snuggled up to mum Inca, having a quiet feed in the cosy indoor den one morning.
"The tiny youngster immediately climbed up onto mum Inca’s back after finishing its first breakfast – settling into the perfect position to be carried around.
"The first thing I noticed was the rare white markings down the baby’s back, which look like a lightning strike: pups usually have grey markings so this baby is definitely special. It’s an amazing coincidence that a baby born during such a dark and stormy night has got such unique colourings to mark the occasion."
Young anteaters spend the first three months clinging to their mother’s backs, sliding down to feed before pulling themselves back up to nestle into mum’s fur.
If that's not cute enough, they even have fantastic camouflage which allows them to align on their mum's back to create one continuous stripe, to avoid the eyes of predators while clinging on.
Inspired by mum Inca’s birth place, Madrid Zoo, ZSL London Zoo keepers will soon be giving the unsexed youngster a Spanish name: Raya meaning ‘stripe’ if it’s a girl, or Trueno, meaning ‘storm’ if it’s a boy.
Keepers will find out the pup’s sex at its first vet check at around three-months-old.
The new arrival, weighing in at around a kilo, will grow quickly into a full sized adult reaching approximately 7ft in length and weigh as much as 45kg.
In the meantime, it will stay close to mum, letting her do all the work while sleeping up to 15 hours a day.
Visitors can enjoy a whole host of Halloween themed activities at ZSL London Zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo this October half-term.
