Nashville Zoo welcomed a male giant anteater on November 16. The new addition, named Gabana, is doing well with mother Dulce living in the off-exhibit giant anteater barn.
Nashville Zoo has been active in anteater conservation for 15 years. This is the fifth anteater birth for the zoo in the last 13 months.
In the wild, giant anteaters inhabit the tropical forests of Central and South America. They are considered vulnerable of extinction by the IUCN.
