More Baby Aardvark Action

Well, here's something you don't get to see too often: a tiny little aardvark baby! It was born last month at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo, and it's the first aardvark to be born there in ten years. Oddly, they don't yet know if it's a boy or a girl, since aardvarks don't have external genitalia until they're a year old. But whatever it is, it's very cute and very wrinkly—and that nose is something else. Its hands look a little bit like they belong on a monster. A very adorable, cuddly monster.
