A furry gray baby with a long nose is the fifth giant anteater in just over a year to be born at the Nashville Zoo.

While the Tennessee zoo has the largest collection of anteaters in the U.S., Gabana was the first baby born to 2-year-old mom Dolce, who was also born at the zoo.

Mom and her baby boy are doing well, living together off exhibit in the anteater barn.

The solitary animals live in the wild in Central and South America’s tropical forests.
