New arrivals at Busch Gardens

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Busch Gardens is welcoming three new arrivals: a squirrel monkey, an anteater and a kangaroo.

The anteater is 1 month old and weighs about five pounds. The kangaroo is about 10 pounds, and is spending most of his time in his mother's pouch. The squirrel monkey is also about a month old, and is checking out the world by riding on its mother's back.

The kangaroo is the only one with a name so far: "Louis." The two others are still too little for zookeepers to know what gender they are, but once they know, they'll get names too.

All three babies are being raised by their parents in private areas, but will eventually make their way to guest viewing areas, park officials said.
