TAMPA (FOX 13) -

He's a pink, wrinkly little baby with a really big snout, and he's the newest addition to Busch Gardens.

The baby aardvark was born Tuesday and park officials say he or she -- it's still not clear -- is healthy.

Aardvarks are solitary by nature, the park says, and aardvark births are generally not common. But this is the third baby born to parents "Izzy" and "Friz." The baby's sister "Adazee" was born a year ago and its older brother "Zawadi" will be two years old on April 10.

This baby is expected to grow to more than 120 lbs. within its first year of life.
