    UPDATE: The new baby anteater made its debut today, along with mama, Evita.

    The San Francisco Zoo had a birth in the family last month, says the Examiner.

    The baby giant anteater was born on December 22, 2010 to a first time, two-year-old mother. The father is a 12 year old anteater named Angelo. The baby is the first giant anteater born at the zoo in a decade.

    You won't be able to check out the new family just yet, as they won't be on display until after an adjustment period, but while you wait, you can stop by and see the new hippo that just arrived from Topeka.

    The video below shows zoo employees unboxing Tucker, the new hippo.
