Zoo Boise welcomes baby giant anteater [VIDEO]

The giant anteater pup was born July 6, to parents Gloria and Macaulay.

This was Macaulay’s first pup and Gloria’s second. The pup will cling to its mother’s back for its first year, and then become independent in a year or two, according to Zoo Boise.

Visitors can see the pup in the morning when temperatures are cool.
